Palmer, AK ~ Come join the Alaska Trail Stewards on one of their trail work projects this fall.  Alaska Trail Stewards is an Alaska Trails program designed to help give volunteers opportunities to maintain and improve the trails that they and many others love.  You have hiked, run, and maybe biked them. You love them and now is the time to pay it forward.

Below are the volunteer days they have scheduled in the next two months. Come out and make a difference! Your trails will love you for it!

• Saturday, Sept. 8: Lazy Moose Trail Volunteer Day #1
• Friday, Sept. 21: Volunteer Day in Hatcher Pass
• Saturday, Sept. 22: Volunteer Day in Hatcher Pass on National Public Lands Day
• Saturday, Oct. 6th – Lazy Moose Trail Volunteer Day #2


The Mat Su Trails and Parks Foundation greatly appreciates the efforts of Alaska Trails, the Mat Su Borough and Alaska State Parks for all the efforts to cultivate a new volunteer corp here in the Mat Su!  More than just a day working on trails, it is a great time to make new connections with others that share a passion for our trails.
