National Trails Day: 30th Anniversary

By on May 17, 2022 in Events, Featured, News, Volunteers

Saturday, June 4, 2022 marks the 30th anniversary of the American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day! In celebration, OVLC is hosting a number of volunteer opportunities including good old trail maintenance, trail cleanup, and some trail restoration work too. Projects will run 9am-12pm and range from easily accessible and not physically demanding to requiring a nice hike in with some rigorous work. This is the perfect opportunity to get out in nature with the people you love, give back to the trails that bring us together, and make sure no one is left out. Our National Trails Day volunteer projects are fit for all ages and skill levels. We encourage you to invite the whole family!

What to bring: Long pants and closed-toed shoes are required (boots recommended). It is recommended you also bring, gloves, a long-sleeve shirt, sun protection (hat, sunglasses, sun block), water, and snacks. We will provide tools, safety gear, additional snacks, and drinks!
