Overview:

The IATA built over 1,400 feet of boardwalk in 2016. This is a hands-on boardwalk construction training to help build the next 1,400 feet – in 2017!

Registration is limited to 25 participants. This training has reached capacity – contact [email protected] to be placed on the wait list. Please complete and return the attached application to build not only boardwalk but local capacity for these big projects.

No previous experience is necessary; training is provided by certified volunteer crew leaders. The IATA provides food, tools, and campsites free to all who volunteer.

Schedule:

Your contribution is welcome for any part of the event or the entire project. Work begins on Wednesday, May 31, and concludes Friday, June 2. Boardwalk training/construction activities begin each day around 8:00 a.m. and typically wrap up between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.

What to Bring:

  • We recommend a long-sleeve shirt and pants for trail work.
  • Plan for variable weather – bring warm layers and rain gear.
  • Sturdy hiking or work boots (no tennis shoes) and leather work gloves.
  • Day pack, water bottles, insect repellent, sunscreen and a hat.
  • If camping, bring a headlamp, tent, sleeping gear and toiletries.
  • Consider bringing a lawn chair; you’ll appreciate having it to relax around the fire in comfortable clothes at the end of the day.

Special Notes:

We love dogs, but we ask that you not bring them to this event. Woolly mammoths are welcome.
