Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers seeks help for trail work in Glenwood Springs
Basalt-based Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers starts its 19th summer season today with the first of four evening projects at the Wulfsohn Mountain Open Space. The work starts at 4 p.m. and ends at dusk. Other Wulfsohn project dates are May 15, 22 and 29.
The nonprofit Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers is seeking volunteers to help build a new trail between the main Wulfsohn Trail and the Upper Loop Trail, adding another two-third mile of single-track and increasing the number of options available. Volunteers also will work to improve the trail and mitigate erosion issues near the community garden.
Volunteers can arrive any time after 4 p.m. and register at the table above the Glenwood Springs Community Center. Work will continue until dusk, after which dinner and beverages will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to bring water, gloves and friends. Pets aren’t allowed.
