Ellis Cove Trail improvement with Oly Parks + free* BBQ 1-3 pm (optional)

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]

    Thanks to Christie, Max, and Charles for joining this fun event. We met with about 100 other folks, picked the type of activity we wanted to do-including carpentry, supervising, ivy pulling, digging...and hiking afterwards. I was so impressed with the quality of attitude of many of the teens who went out of their way several times to say "Thank You" for being there to show them how and lend a helping hand. And the free BBQ lunch and gifts from North Face were a nice addition. I'll definitely do more of these.

      Thanks for the positive attitude, Allen! It was really nice to have everyone come out an I'm glad we didn't scare you off! :) We'd love to see the group at more volunteer events!
