Building New Trail at the Chihuahuan Dessert Nature Center and Botanical Gardens, Fort Davis, Texas promises to be one of the best projects the Trail Tamers have been involved in for many years. See below for details about the amazing perks of signing up for this project.
The project: The Trail Tamers will be joining up with volunteers from the Davis Mountains, Fort Davis, Alpine and Marfa area to work on a re-route of the most important trail in the whole nature center. Leading from the Visitor's Center to the geological wonder of the Modesta Canyon, this work will transform this trail into a showcase for generations to come.
The Perks!: The CDRI is generously providing lodging to 10 Trail Tamers for six nights each at the Mountain Trails Lodge and three meals per day on workday (Monday through Friday) for the Central Texas Trail Tamers. For the lucky 10 who sign up first, this is a value of $780 for lodging and roughly $150 for food per person. So, no cooking and no tents! You will share a double room with another Trail Tamer, so if you want to pick your roommate, let me know asap as you sign up.
Even with all those perks, the cost for this event is only $150. It comes with the free lodging and meals, so it is unlikely we will ever beat this deal again. This is event is for members of the Trail Tamers only. Please register as soon as you can. Because of the Lodge's Cancellation policy, we will need to give the a final head count at least 30 days before the project starts. Last day to register is February 1st, but sooner is better.
We will meet Sunday evening March 6th for a welcome dinner and a preview of the project. Work commences Monday morning and we will have five full workdays. Each worker gets two half days off during the week for recovery, as needed. We will celebrate the new trail on Friday March 12th. Plan to be present for the whole project. Scott Newsom and Kevin Deiters will lead this project.
The Central Texas Trail Tamers is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
