Join us on Saturday, June 2, for a “TRAILgating” Party near the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais in celebration of the American Hiking Society’s 20th annual National Trails Day! The price of admission to the party is just three hours of volunteer trail maintenance work. From 9:00 a.m. to noon, help prune vegetation, install a stream crossing and make general trail drainage/tread improvements on Fern Creek and Tavern Pump trails. Then, join us for a complimentary lunch at 12:30 p.m. at the historic West Point Inn.
We’ll meet a little before 9:00 a.m. at the parking lot on the East Peak of Mt. Tamalpais. Wear sturdy boots and dress in layers as weather conditions can change rapidly. MMWD will supply water, gloves, tools and instruction. The West Point Inn is a 1.5 mile walk from the work site.
This event is suitable for ages 13 and up. Volunteers under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and volunteers under age 18 must bring a permission form signed by a parent or guardian. For more information, contact our Volunteer Program at (415) 945-1128 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Created in 1993, National Trails Day celebrates America’s magnificent trail system and its countless supporters and volunteers. The slogan for 2012, America’s Largest TRAILgating Party, is an open invitation to all Americans to get outside and connect with local hiking clubs, outdoor retailers, local parks and recreation departments, or land management agencies to experience everything the great outdoors has to offer.
