  • Heritage Chapter Volunteer and Northland Intern Week

    Upson Falls campground

    This is a five-day work week designed to fit within the Northland College May-Term where student interns can learn trail building with hands-on applications on a section of trail currently under development. We are looking for volunteer members who can work with and share their skills with Northland Interns during this Tuesday-through-Saturday Week. We will likely camp at Upson Falls Campground in Upson, WI. However, we may move our camp depending on conditions, so it is important to sign up for this event so as to stay in communication. Participants should wear appropriate work clothing and boots. Bring rain gear just in case. Heritage Chapter provides helmets, eye and ear protection, gloves and all tools. Participants should bring snacks, lunch and water for each day as we will be out on the trail. We will work out dinner plans as we get closer to the event and see how many intend to stay in camp. Member-volunteers can sign up for a day or the whole week, but please let me know your intentions. Please sign up here and I (Mike Stafford) will contact you for more info and with more particulars. The last day of this week overlaps with the normal chapter work weekend on Saturday. This way more volunteers and more Northland Interns can work together on that Saturday and share dinner that Saturday night.
