Get Dirty with the Sierra Buttes Trail

GRAEAGLE, Calif. and#8212; Get dirty, have fun and become a steward by volunteering with the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship (SBTS). The work would not be possible without hundreds of volunteers who have contributed their time and passion over the years to the trails. Volunteer opportunities range from building and maintaining trail, helping out at special events (opportunities are endless), and yep, even office help. Below is a list of just some of the ways to get involved:

SBTS Volunteer Vacation, July 5-8

Join the SBTS Crew on the Long Lake Trail between the Mount Elwell Trail intersection and the spillway of Long Lake in the Gold Lakes Basin. The work involves heavy trail maintenance and restoration and the perk is that SBTS provides four days of camping with all food and beverages (yep, even beer) included. Come out for just one day or join the full four days.

Help Prep the Famous Downieville Classic Race Course

Thereand#8217;s serious work to be done to get ready for this nationally recognized event. If you are interested in joining the crew in prepping the course, volunteers are needed from July 5 until just before the event begins on July 9. Volunteers are also needed during the event.
