From the REI Event calendar: 

Ever wonder who maintains and builds those trails you hike on? Who clears the fallen trees and brush, keeps invasive plant species at bay, or revegetates habitat and transforms those muddy, washed out sections of trail into navigable and inviting footpaths? People just like you – on service trips with Wilderness Volunteers. And we want you to come join us! A national nonprofit founded in 1997, Wilderness Volunteers partners with national and local organizations to organize and promote volunteer service projects that would go undone without volunteer support. Wilderness Volunteers runs 50 week-long service trips each year throughout our national parks, forests, and wilderness areas. In just one year, our volunteers donated more than 15,000 hours of work, collectively maintaining and building over 70 miles of trails, planting more than 13,000 plants, moving more than 70 tons of rock, and removing miles of fencing and thousands of invasive weeds. Stop by to learn what it’s like to spend a week “Giving Something Back” in some of the country’s most beautiful places and learn how you can join us on one of our projects, which run from March to October.
