for trail construction
on Green Mountain
Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) need about 200 volunteers for a trail construction project at Green Mountain on Saturday, June 29.
The volunteer effort will focus on rerouting an eroding, steep section of the Rooney Valley Trail in William Frederick Hayden Park, situated atop Green Mountain.
“This volunteer effort will help connect a mid-level trail along the side of William Frederick Hayden Park, spreading the use of this heavily-used trail system,” said Erik Nilsen, natural resource specialist.
“Volunteers make a lot of what we do possible. They account for more than 60 percent of the trail construction and maintenance at Lakewood’s Regional Parks.”
No experience is necessary to volunteer. Registered volunteers will be treated to a light breakfast and lunch.
The minimum age to participate is 14.
Volunteers are asked to register in advance to ensure adequate quantities of tools, supplies, and food.
Register online at www.voc.org/volunteer or by calling 303-715-1010.
