Friends of Kananaskis Country
TRAIL CARE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
FORKS CAMPGROUND AND TRAIL WORK
This project will work out at the Forks campground (Kananaskis Lakes area) with Alberta Parks trails staff to move a large pile of firewood about 100m (with help of ATV/trailer and a power wheelbarrow), working with hand tools on some finishing touches on a new section of trail, and some reclamation work. This activity is suited to volunteers comfortable with physically challenging work, including access to the project (see note below).
IMPORTANT NOTE: access to this project will be via bike. Volunteers must be competent riding, and for some sections walking, an e-mountain bike on singletrack trail (8km, approx. 1.25 hrs each way). FKC will provide e-bikes, volunteers must provide their own helmet as well as carry their own backpack with clothes, food, water, etc. for the day.
