National Trails Day is just around the corner and we look forward to celebrating for the second year in a row! Join us on Saturday, June 6 for our volunteer event in Grand Teton National Park. Volunteers will focus on trail maintenance along one of the many popular hiking trails in Grand Teton. The specific location will be determined the week of the event.

This nationwide holiday is celebrated every year on the first Saturday in June to recognize America’s extensive trail system. Trail maintenance is extremely important in protecting Grand Teton’s natural resources. Not only do clear trails provide an enjoyable hiking experience, they also minimize erosion and impact on the environment.

Interested in volunteering? Please RSVP to maddy@gtnpf.org or 307-201-7660 by Wednesday, June 3rd.

Volunteers will meet at Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center at 11AM and should plan to return around 5PM.
