The Tahoe Rim Trail Association, in cooperation with the U.S. Forest Service, will host a Beginning of Season Workday on the Tahoe Rim Trail Saturday June 21, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

Volunteering is a great way for users to show their appreciation for public recreation trails. The workday will be in Tahoe City off Highway 89, on Fairway Drive just 0.2 mi west of Hwy 28. Roadside and lot parking will be available near the Fairway Community Center. All are welcome and lunch will be provided.

This season, volunteer work will focus on building new trail! The first project is a 3-mile reroute of the trail leading from Tahoe City to Brockway and will incorporate scenic views and a more environmentally sensitive layout. Tasks will be available for volunteers in all levels of physical ability, from easy to strenuous. Families are welcome.

To participate, please register by June 20 with the online events calendar at http://www.tahoerimtrail.org or by calling Jill at (775) 298-0239. Volunteers must wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, boots and work gloves; bring sunscreen, bug spray and plenty of water. Check the weather reports and bring additional clothing as necessary. The Tahoe Rim Trail Association will provide hard hats and all trail tools.
