Help improve Quemazon Trail with the Santa Fe National Forest and the Pajarito Environmental Education Center Saturday, Sept. 1.
This trail workday is 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is the perfect opportunity for Los Alamos residents to give back to our incredible trail system. There will be trail maintenance jobs for all ages, and U.S. Forest Service experts will be on site to ensure safety and provide instructions.
Volunteers should pre-register for this project at www.peecnature.org. Participants will meet at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 9 a.m. and carpool to the trailhead. Once there, they will hike in approximately 45 minutes to the project site. Volunteers need to wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, sturdy boots and a hat. They should bring water, snacks, lunch and work gloves. Hard hats, some tools, some extra pairs of gloves and good company will be provided. Volunteers can bring their own tools if they prefer.
