Enjoy and help improve the Randall Davey Audubon Center & Sanctuary trail system that leads through several different habitats and plant zones ranging from meadows to Ponderosa Pine forests and even a wetland area. We will undertake a wide-range of tasks aimed at improving trail tread and making the system more inviting to hikers. We will construct 3 to 4 rock stairs and a 50 foot trail re-route on the two spur sections that tie into Bear Canyon Trail (upper end of trail system), make improvements (materials pending) to the bridge half-way along the center transect trail, and there were several locations where drainage needs improvement, cleanout, etc.
Visit the Randall Davey Audubon Center & Sanctuary website for more information on the location:http://nm.audubon.org/randall-davey-audubon-center-sanctuary.
Essential gear for field work includes long-sleeved shirts, long pants, work gloves, work boots, sun protection and raingear (just in case). Volunteers will be treated to lunch by the Center, but should bring plenty of water and desired snacks. No experience is necessary: training & tools will be provided. Pre-registration is required for planning purposes, so please sign up for this project by Sunday, July 21. Carpooling is encouraged and will be facilitated by the project leader. Plan to meet at the Audubon Center no later than 8:00 A.M. - click here for a map and watch for green NMVFO signs as you enter the property to direct you to the gathering place.
If this is your first NMVFO project, you can find more information about what to expect at http://nmvfo.org/volunteer/volunteer-faq or email or call me (Chris), the project leader, [masked], (505) 504-3768.
