Trail Assessment Training in the Mat Su

Trail assessment trainingPalmer, AK ~ Alaska Trails will be hosting a one-day training that includes both classroom and field work.  This is an ideal program for all of our grantees, trail groups, and service clubs that work on trail projects around the valley.  The program is design to teach volunteers the basics of sustainable trails, common problems on trails and a process for identifying and cataloging those problems. The data will be collected and organized in such a manner that land managers will be able to use it for their trail crews or for volunteer trail maintenance.  If you haven’t already taken a course like this, and you are volunteering on trail projects this summer or in the future here is an opportunity to be even more effective out in the field.

WHEN :: Saturday August 11th, 2018

Field timeTIME ::  8:30am – 4:30pm

WHERE :: Hatcher Pass – Independence Mine State Park
