Date & Time:

Saturday, October 5, 2019
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Volunteers:

1 have signed up & 44 openings remain.

Description:

Help construct a brand new trail system in the Pineries Open Space, an area in Black Forest scheduled to open to public access for the first time later this year! This is moderately strenuous work involving new trail tread cutting and a moderate hike of up to a couple miles into the worksite. This workday will be led by the Rocky Mountain Field Institute, a Colorado Springs based nonprofit organization that leads hundreds of volunteer-based trail and restoration workdays throughout Southern Colorado. 

 
What to expect: This is a full day of moderately strenuous work using tools in the outdoors and involves a moderate hike of up to a couple miles between the parking area and worksite. 
 
Age Requirement: Volunteers must be 13+. Volunteers aged 13-16 need to be accompanied by an adult. 
 

What to bring: Water, a lunch, rain gear,  work gloves (if you have them), sunglasses, sunscreen, work gloves, backpack. Since this project is ALL DAY, please ensure you have everything you need, especially a lunch & lots of water. 

What to wear: Long pants, sturdy work or hiking shoes, no shorts or open-toed shoes

Rally Details: Because you are serving in the North area on CityServe Day, you will be rallying at New Life Church (see map for details) at 8am. Join us at the North Rally to pray and grab some coffee before you head to Pineries Open Space. One of our local Pastors will pray over you before you go out to serve the Northside of Colorado Springs.
