Trails_Crew_and_volunteersIt’s official. We have a date and time for crew leader training!

August 10 from 9am to 1pm.

Because of the overwhelming responses we’re getting for volunteers on September 7 we need trained crew leaders to manage the workforce. We will have Ryan Shutz (former IMBA trainer) and Scott Winget (head trail designer) on hand to teach you how to build trail and manage volunteer workers. Anyone is welcome to attend but we are specifically looking for people who will be available to lead crews on September 7.

Please arrive before 9am so we can start promptly.


Leon Wurl Public Works Building
150 Bonnell Ave
Erie, CO 80516
