This National Trails Day event is sponsored by the Olympia Parks Stewardship Program and Alpine Experience (AE) at Priest Point Park (PPP) from 10 AM -1 PM. We will focus on tuning-up the stairs and railings on the Ellis Cove Trail, and other Trail needs depending on the number of participants.
A rest break with snacks and drinks provided will be at about 11:15 AM.
Olympia Parks staff will provide training, supervision, tools, gloves, snacks, and drinks.
Restrooms are available in the Park.
*Pre-registration by noon Friday, May 31, either by RSVPing here or calling Parks at [masked] is required for a free ticket to the BBQ (optional) held from 1-3 PM at AE's Mountain Life Festival and also for a chance to win t-shirts at the completion of the Trail work.
Even if not pre-registered, you are still welcome to show up the morning of the event and participate.
I volunteered at Priest Point Park (PPP) on Earth Day and we all had a great time. Events are family friendly but no pets please.
Adults are especially welcome, since many teens who are earning "Community Service" credit for graduation will be present. I think of this as a wonderful opportunity to mentor and show by example our interest in Nature and hiking to the next generation.
BRING: Boots and hat for safety, protective layers, and favorite gloves if you prefer.
I can be contacted 10AM-7PM at[masked] or email at [masked]
