Plan to attend this informative event if you are registered for a 2019 spring Powwow Trail maintenance trip. Outdoor enthusiasts who want to learn more about volunteering with a trail clearing crew are also welcome.
This event is an introduction to volunteering and trail maintenance trips in the BWCA Wilderness with the Boundary Waters Advisory Committee, where safety is our #1 priority. If you are a 2019 crew volunteer and are not able to attend, contact your crew leader to make alternative arrangements.
TIME: 6:15 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Arrive early if you can. The store closes at 8:00 p.m. on April 11. We will need to start and end our training on time.
