    The Trail Tamers are returning on February 16-18 to work on a new trail.

    There is a fee for this trip and meals will be provided. If you paid a trip fee for the October trip which was cancelled, the fee will roll forward so you do not need to pay again.

    In addition to the camping area at the top, the Stewardship Center has bathrooms with showers as well as a kitchen we will be able to use (with a couple of bunks, too).

    Angie Hardy will coordinate this trip. Any questions please contact texastrailtamers@gmail.com
