Over 25 volunteers - from as far away as Flagstaff and Phoenix - attended the last Red Rock Ranger District (RRRD) volunteer trail work day of the 2017-2018 season.
The RRRD held over 40 volunteer work days this season with each one co-sponsored by various local organizations. Today, REI Flagstaff was the co-sponsor which explains the volunteer origination diversity.
Kyle informed the volunteers that over 4,600 hours have been contributed by RRRD volunteers this season.
Then we headed out from the Cultural Center trail head onto the Girdner Trail for our work day. We focused on erosion, rock work and rehab assignments. Girdner was specifically chosen to give everyone an appreciation for the upcoming Western Gateway Trail System, construction of which is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2018.
We finished up and were treated to great eats and SWAG from REI.
