Want to volunteer in Grand Teton this summer? Saturday, June 2nd is National Trails Day—the largest celebration of trails in the United States! Last year, over 170,000 people participated to renew and enjoy pathways across the country. Join us in Grand Teton National Park for our fourth annual volunteer project and help improve one of the popular trails.

Over 200 miles of trail in Grand Teton offer access to gorgeous backcountry lakes and streams, glacially carved canyons, and incredible wilderness camping. Natural and human-caused erosion mean these trails need maintenance to protect the natural environment and ensure a positive visitor experience.

Give back to your favorite park and join us on June 2nd! Please RSVP to alex@gtnpf.org or call 307-732-0629 by Thursday, June 1st.

Project work will focus on the west shore of Jenny Lake, cleaning drainage features and clearing the trail corridor of overgrown brush. Volunteers will meet at the Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 9AM and return around 1PM. Wear sturdy shoes or boots, bring plenty of water, lunch, snacks, and a daypack with sunscreen, raincoat, and warm layers.
