Snowmass trail talks: Volunteers wanted

Town of Snowmass Parks, Recreation and Trails Department
Special to the Snowmass Sun

Audrey Hepburn once said, “As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands: One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.”

There are many great reasons to give back to your community — the fun, the folks you meet and the skills you learn along the way.

With two months remaining to tackle a Denver phonebook-size list of projects, we could use the community’s help.

Have you ever dreamed of swinging a trail tool, identifying those noxious weeds or learning how we get all those poop bags in such a small container?

The town of Snowmass Parks, Recreation and Trails Department can teach you through its “Bag of Weed” volunteer program. The winner will receive a free one-year recreation center pass.

In addition to the department’s weed program, other volunteer opportunities include:

Building the community garden.

Trail maintenance, i.e. trimming shrubs, drainages and rock work.

Re-stocking poop bag stations.

Sweeping the recreation paths.

Weed removal from trails and open space.

If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity or have ideas for other projects, please contact the parks and trails manager at 922-2249 or
