NATIONAL TRAILS DAY ON MT. LEMMON

Partners to Perform Trail Work June 2

 

 

Tucson, AZ (May 30, 2012) – The Coronado National Forest, Santa Catalina Ranger District, will host trail building activities on Mt. Lemmon June 2 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in celebration of National Trails Day. 

 

El Grupo, Parks in Focus, REI and the Southwest Conservation Corps will perform trail maintenance on the Green Mountain Trail.  They will meet at the Middle Bear Picnic Area for registration and for lunch.

 

Work will take place on the Upper Green Mountain Trail (located just before San Pedro Vista) and the Lower Green Mountain Trail (located at Middle Bear Picnic Area).  Volunteers will focus on eradication of social trails, minor trash removal, and light trimming of vegetation.  Youth participants with Parks in Focus will document volunteer efforts and trail conditions “before and after” the work was completed.

 

Please RSVP to Heidi Schewel at (520) 388-8484 or hschewel@fs.fed.us if you are interested in attending by close of business Thursday, May 31.
