POSTPONED TIL LATER DATE.  As per Mike Shragge from Friends of Kananaskis. This is trail maintenance. Shoveling , pick axe and hoe work. The meetup will be in the Lac Des Arcs area at 9AM.

Could be the campground or the trailhead for Heart Mountain on the other side of the highway.

I will post more details when I know. This is voluntary and he is asking for 10 participants. Depending on work I may or may not go.

    Please read!!! Kananaskis K Country just called me back to profusely apologize that they have grossly overbooked for tomorrow! They are asking, with the utmost apology, to advise all who signed up that while our group is not needed for tomorrow, that people can individually sign up for a whole list of later dates directly with them. Andy, probably best to cancel this trip posting, but here is how to get your name on their list for volunteering. The reason for limiting numbers is safety restriction related. They want our help, but advise it's best to register directly with them. Here's the process:

    1.) Go to their website: http://www.kananaskis.org/
    2.) Click on "Become a Friend/Member" tab below their name
    3.) Fill out the entire screen, and choose "Trail Care" under volunteering. You will then be contacted by e-mail with a schedule and they'll work with you from there. Sorry guys, Rosemarie @ Friends of K says a huge thanks! Me too! Laurel

    Okay, everybody, here's the scoop. I called the friends of Kananaskis directly and spoke with Rosemarie, who will be there tomorrow. Mike will not. She has this group (10 spots) included in the count, so they are definitely looking forward to us showing up. I gave the names of all who have signed up as confirmed, but with a head's up that it may or may not stay at this number if people have work commitments. All total, there are 17 people scheduled from all over to aid the regular trail crew, so our group is pretty important :-) You don't need shovels, just good outdoor wear, and definitely sturdy boots! Andy, my cell number is[masked] if you need any more info. This is your organized meetup, I don't want to muscle in, so feel free to call me if you need anything else. I have Rosemarie's cell number if you need to make any changes to the roster. I can definitely pass that to you via e-mail. See you tomorrow, everybody! Laurel

      Thanks Laurel and no problem muscling in. I appreciate it. It's looking more and more like I will not be able to attend due to work commitments. I will try for a later date or definately a weeknd.

    Andy, as of 3 hours ago, the Friends of Kananaskis Facebook page said they were full already for tomorrow. I have asked for clarification, and whether these 10 spots are included in their "filled up" allotment. Would be disappointing to show up and be told that there was no room for us if our numbers weren't part of that arrangment. I'll keep you posted.

    Do they provide shovels etc?
    Cynthia Rose, I may be able to give you a lift, can you email me for where to pick you up?

    July 9, 2013

  • Cynthia R.

    I may be able to go. I live out by Calaway Park, would it be possible for someone going out on Hwy 1 to detour a little and let me catch a ride with them? I need to be back for 5-5:30.

    Everyone has to make their own way to Lac Des Arcs. I may have to work and will not be arranging carpooling. It is not an official trip.

    Is there any chance there will be more volunteers needed but on weekends only? Can't do weekdays due to work.

    • Miriam R

      The Friends of Kananaskis are looking for volunteers for trail recovery work. Heart mountain's schedule is from July 8-12. If you want weekends, there may be slots for Canmore Nordic Center
