Crew Leadership & Skills Training,
Dane County
How do you engage 1,200 volunteers a year and steadily raise the bar of an award-winning trail program? With terrific volunteer leadership! Whether you are new to the delights of trailbuilding or a veteran CL looking for a refresher, you are the future.
Applications accepted until March 31.
Ringle Segment, Marathon County You helped open 1.7 new miles last year. This year, help take it further. Discover this “Landscape Crossroads” where ancient glacial drift meets ‘new’ Wisconsin drift – ephemeral ponds, boulder-strewn hillsides, and ice-walled lake plains harboring stones from hundreds of miles distant. This new section will be sure to inspire.
June 6-9 Harwood Lakes Segment,
Chippewa County
Old school meets new in this focused bridge/boardwalk replacement and trail reroute. Join us in the deep woods of Chippewa County as we ring in the summer hiking season by sprucing up this rustic section of Trail.
Registration is capped at 40.
June 28-
July 1
Ice Age Trail University
Dane County
Dig into the back-to-basics skills that are fundamental to the Trails purpose and success. Tread construction, Stonework, Thinking Beyond the Blaze, Trail Eyes…course details and schedule coming soon.
Walla Hi Segment,
Manitowoc County
The new Walla Hi Segment opened for use in 2017, but is a half-mile shy of the road-to-road connection needed to tag this gem on your thousand-miler list.  Help is needed with stonework, boardwalk construction, and vegetative management.
Registration is capped at 55.
Cross Plains Segment,
Dane County
This new-trail construction party in the Village of Cross Plains celebrates community and built-to-last camaraderie. Tread, signage, stonework and trail stewardship zones will be the focus of this shindig!
September Trailwide Stay up to date with the online calendar; find a local event to pitch in at or lend a hand with under-the-radar projects not listed on this calendar, or…breathe deep and take that long hike you’ve been wanting to enjoy!
Old Railroad Segment,
Langlade County
This event is all-hands-on-deck & a HUGE opportunity! Please join us and help reroute nearly 10 miles of reimagined Ice Age Trail. This is the first MSC event to occur in the gargantuan tableau of Langlade County and promises to be fun for all.
