Celebrate National Trails Day

-A A +A
By Jennifer Garcia

Los Alamos County Parks Division will sponsor a community trail maintenance workshop and kick off its new Adopt-A-Trail program on June 6, in celebration of National Trails Day.

National Trails Day is a celebration of trail systems across the nation and this year will mark the 17th year of nationwide trail user participation and awareness, improvement and enjoyment of trails.

The workshop is designed to provide the basics of safe use of tools, of trail design and of trail maintenance. Participants will learn how to divert water from a trail, prevent trail erosion, put native plant materials to use in trail protection and to construct trails that require little future maintenance.

The trail workshop will provide basic instruction on the kinds of conditions to look for on adopted trails.

There’s no fee for the workshop and youth groups as well as adult leaders and families are welcome to sign up regardless of children’s age. However, individuals should be at least 16 years old.

Volunteers need to attend a one-and-a-half hour training session, which will be held on June 6. Groups who wish to schedule training sessions can call Open Space Specialist Craig Martin.
