Overview:

This project is a return to Taylor County for Round 2. The focus shifts to the Wood Lake Segment and reopening a section that has been closed since 2012 due to ambitious beavers. The project includes boardwalk and bridge construction, tread and signage. Wood Lake always presents a terrific base camp.

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 Tuesday, July 26, and concludes Sunday, July 31. 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 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.
