The Trail Tamers will return to the Davis Mountains Preserve during the week of April 7-13 to maintain and repair an equestrian trail into Cherry Canyon.
Cody Glover will be the crew leader for the project. You will need to provide your own transportation to and from the project. Meals will be provided.
The Davis Mountains Preserve is on Hwy 118, about 26 miles northwest of the town of Fort Davis, and about 11 miles past the McDonald Observatories.
The course use a curriculum developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association in conjunction with the U.S. Forest Service. In them you will learn “how trails work”, basic design concepts, safety protocols, and how to gain “trail eyes”.
If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity where you can gain a new skill to add to your resume and are interested in the fields of land management or public land conservation and stewardship then you will find these workshops beneficial to your career.
