National Trails Day in Grand Teton - Volunteers Needed

Saturday, June 3rd, 2017 is National Trails Day, the largest celebration of trails in the United States! Last year, over 170,000 people turned out to support and enjoy pathways in parks and forests across the country! Join the Grand Teton National Park Foundation in Grand Teton for their annual volunteer project and help improve one of the popular trails.

Over 200 miles of trail in Grand Teton offer access to gorgeous backcountry lakes and streams, glacially carved canyons, and incredible wilderness camping. Natural and human-caused erosion mean these trails need constant maintenance to protect the natural environment and ensure a positive visitor experience.

Give back to one of your favorite parks and join the Foundation on June 3rd! Please RSVP to alex@gtnpf.org or call 307-732-0629 by Thursday, June 1st.

Volunteers will meet at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 11AM and return around 3PM. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, bring plenty of water, lunch, snacks, and a daypack with sunscreen, raincoat, and warm layers! Project work will focus on the Moose Ponds trail- cleaning drainage features, trimming overgrown brush, and continuing clean-up from a large avalanche.
