Trail Maintenance Training

April 27 @ 8:00 am - April 28 @ 5:00 pm

April 27-28 at Seneca Rocks Discovery Center and in the field

Description: As part of the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy’s Dolly Sods Wilderness Stewards program, the Trail Maintenance Team was formed last year and new members are welcome! The trails in Dolly Sods are challenging and purposely primitive, but they need a lot of work to protect the wilderness environment by keeping water off the trail and people on the trail! We use a variety of tools and specialized techniques to make the trails as compatible with wilderness as possible. Scheduled project are held through the spring and summer. The weekend training includes classroom instruction on tools, methods and safety, and a day of field work. This is your chance to make a positive difference for the Dolly Sods trails.

The Dolly Sods Wilderness Stewards program was formed in partnership with the Monongahela National Forest to allow for volunteer action to supplement the Forest Service’s wilderness management activities, engage in visitor education and support the long-term health of the wilderness.
