Participate in volunteer trail work to “make a difference”
Sedona, AZ – If you like the outdoors and are interested in volunteering to “make a difference” in the National Forest, come join the Forest Service trail team with several upcoming volunteer trail work days.
The first volunteer work day is scheduled for Sunday, November 11. Volunteers will organize into several small teams lead by the Forest Service where they will work on a portion of the Slim Shady trail, located west of Yavapai Point Vista. Individuals will learn trail construction techniques and how to safely contribute to a well planned and maintained trail system.
Interested volunteers are asked to meet at the new Yavapai Vista parking area for the November 11 event at 10 A.M. The parking area is located south of Sedona on State Route 179 and is accessed from the southbound lane.
Volunteers need to come prepared and bring with them: a helmet if available, sun glasses, work gloves, drinking water, sun screen, a hat, long sleeved shirt, long pants, and wear boots with ankle support.
Additional Red Rock District volunteer trail events are planned for:
· December 8th and 19th, 2012
