Trail skills workshop

Saturday, October 25, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

This day-long training is intended to help community and land trust volunteers gain the skills needed to create and maintain trails, enabling them to facilitate trail projects back home. The training will feature an introduction to tools and safety procedures, followed by instruction on trail design, construction and maintenance of structures such as turnpikes and stone steps. The training will also include emphasis on volunteer management. Register in advance; local lodging options are available.
