Since first opening in 2004, a key design element and compelling story of the Storrs Lake Segment of the Ice Age National Scenic Trail has been hidden from view – the Milton Moraine, courtesy of the last continental glaciation. Let’s change that! Help craft a half-mile reroute among glacial kettles, restore an oak savanna and woodland and complete trail maintenance needs.

The IATA provides food, tools, and campsites free to all who volunteer. No previous experience is necessary; training is provided by certified volunteer crew leaders. There will be roles for all ages and abilities.

Schedule:

Your contribution is welcome for any part of the event or the entire project. Work begins on Wednesday, June 24, and concludes Sunday, June 28. Trail construction activities begin each day around 8:00 a.m. and typically wrap up between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. On Sunday, work ends by noon.

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 repellant, 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.

Can’t wait to get started?
