Participants needed for Eagles Nest Wilderness Volunteer Ranger Program

DAILY NEWS STAFF REPORT

The Friends of the Eagles Nest Wilderness Volunteer Ranger Program is a fun and rewarding opportunity for those who enjoy hiking in the Eagles Nest Wilderness. Volunteer Rangers choose trails in the wilderness on which to hike for at least four days during the season. They interact with other hikers and visit with them about wilderness protocols, such as where camps may be set up and whether fires are allowed. They provide directions to trails, discuss pet protections and answer the many questions visitors ask.

Volunteers wear official U.S. Forest Service shirts for identification. Only a few positions are available for Summit and Eagle County. The deadline to apply is April 30.

Visit http://www.fenw.org for an application or call Cyndi Koop at (970) 468-6699 in Summit County and Ken Harper at (970) 390-1341 in Eagle County.
