Dan Schroder, director of the Colorado State University Extension program in Summit County, leads Friends of the Dillon Ranger District members on a forestry in the field hike from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at B&B Trail in Breckenridge.

If you've never "shocked" a stream before, now's your chance. Partnering with the U.S. Forest Service, Friends of the Dillon Ranger District will shock and net fish from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. to gauge the health of the area's stream. If you like casting a line, this is the project for you.

Saturday, Aug. 12

Want to take your volunteer experience to new heights? Don't miss this trail maintenance project on Quandary Peak from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. One of Colorado's most visited 14ers is in need of a little TLC, and in partnership with the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, participants can come swing some tools around or below tree line and meet new friends all in the company of one of Summit's majestic mountain views.
