Project description: An annual location for the Summer of Stewardship program, the Coldwater Trailheads Trail Day provides much-needed TLC to Duck Pass, one of the Lakes Basin's most heavily traveled trails. This year's cleanup focused entirely on this facility and the day-use area, with volunteers interacting with scores of trail users from around the U.S. Lunch was catered generously by the Westin Monache Resort's Whitebark Restaurant, with giveaways from Kittredge Sports and other local businesses.
When: Saturday, August 11, 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Where: Meet at the Duck Pass Trailhead under the white pop-up tent for a bagel breakfast, safety talk and work assignments.
What: Head out with a trail-care crew for a morning of maintenance, then back to the tent for a catered lunch and giveaways.
Who: Volunteers of all ages and abilities are welcome! Please dress for trail work: sturdy, close-toed shoes, hat, long pants and a long-sleeve shirt. Gloves and tools provided.
