Meet Your Forest column: Volunteer for a trail day
The Dillon Ranger District invites you to join your neighbors and friends to enhance our backyard we call the national forest. Volunteers make all the difference in helping with the efforts to clean up and maintain one of the most heavily-used natural areas in the country.
Last Wednesday at the Frisco Peninsula trails, the Summit Daily, town of Frisco and Friends of the Dillon Ranger District had a fun and productive day building drainage dips to alleviate the onslaught of water on the trail tread. The work is crucial in keeping erosion at bay and the efforts of these volunteers will help sustain this trail system for years to come.
There is still time to join in on all the fun in your local national forest this summer. Come out with the whole family. Sign up today, our website page is fdrd.org /calendar/
