BLM to Host Volunteer Project this Weekend

BLMThe BLM Little Snake Field Office and partners invite the public to volunteer and enjoy public lands this weekend to celebrate National Public Lands Day. The BLM is partnering with Conservation Colorado and the Colorado Mountain Club for a National Public Lands Day project in the Little Yampa Canyon Special Recreation Management Area 35 miles south of Craig. The weekend event is designed to link volunteers with opportunities to improve and enjoy public lands. The BLM is looking for volunteers to help with Vista Trail maintenance and then stay and enjoy Little Yampa Canyon SRMA. Registration begins Friday afternoon at 1, followed by a geocaching hunt at 6, and a campfire talk at 8 with free hot dogs and marshmallows. Registration will continue Saturday morning from 8 to 9:30, which will include a safety talk before trail maintenance begins at 10. Volunteers should expect to work for at least 4 hours on Saturday. You should have plenty of water, sunscreen, chap stick, a hat, work gloves, and a lunch or snacks. Trail work is expected to go until 2, at which time the group will head back to the camping area for downtime. It is highly recommended that you RSVP at 826-5083 so they can get an accurate count for the amount of supplies they will need.
