SOC Trail Days

*ACTION ALERT!*

Save Our Canyons Trail Days

WHEN: Saturday, June 9
WHERE: Meet at The Big Cottonwood Canyon Park and Ride lot at 8:00 AM
WHY: To keep your trails in shape!

Another year has sped by and Save Our Canyons is again lining up volunteers for our Trail Days with the Forest Service. We will continue to go out on the second Saturday of June (9), July (14), August (11), and September (8). The Forest Service is always low on funds for maintaining trails and campsites, but this year they have zero dollars allocated so Save Our Canyons and the Wasatch Mountain Club members feel that, as constant users of the trails, we should do our best to help keep them in shape. If you are a trail user or just someone who likes to work outdoors, seriously consider marking your calendars for one or more Trail Days. There is work for every ability level for people eighteen years or older. We will finish working about noon to 1 p.m.

Bring:
– 2 qts. of water or more
– extra shirt
– rain gear if applicable
– lunch
– snack
– sunscreen and bug repellent
– work gloves
– a pack to carry it all

Wear: long pants and shirt (long sleeved SOC tee shirt if you have one) heavy boots.

At this time, we are planning on doing rehab on campsites and trails in the Mill B area of Big Cottonwood Canyon. This is subject to change.

Gayle Parry will bring brownies and drinks for tired trail workers when the work is completed.

Let Gayle know if you are planning to come by e-mailing Gayle Parry – “gwparry -A T- comcast.net” If not sure yet, just show up.
WE NEED YOU!!! PLEASE MAKE THIS A PRIORITY AND MARK IT ON YOUR CALENDAR!
