Volunteer on WMSC's Adopt-a-Trail Team!
Learn about the science behind sustainable trails, and give back to your local trails on these community trail work days. All tools are provided, just come ready to get your hands dirty out on the trail! Trail work sessions are three hours, and include non-alcoholic drinks and light snacks after we're done putting in work on the trail.
The Community Trail Crew is open to volunteers ages 12+ (volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult parent or guardian). No trail work experience is required!
What is Adopt-a-Trail
The Eagle County Adopt-a-Trail (AAT) program is a partnership between the US Forest Service and the Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance. Through this program, local organizations commit to maintaining sections of local trails as a way of giving back to their community and maintaining quality recreation opportunities in the Eagle Valley! Walking Mountains Science Center has been a part of the AAT program, maintaining the Buck Creek & Avon Overlook trails adjacent to our Avon-Tang Campus for ____ years and we would love to get you out as a part of our team. Sign up below for a trail work day that works for you!
For more information on the AAT program, and the Vail Valley Mountain Trails Alliance, visit www.vvmta.org

Although Walking Mountains is academically oriented, some of the activities are quite strenuous if the participant is unfamiliar with such activities or is not in good physical condition. The ability to walk several miles without undue fatigue indicates reasonable physical fitness. Any previous knee or ankle problems, excessive weight, or allergies to food, medicine or insect bites are also of particular concern.The following information is important and will help us avoid health or medical problems before they occur.
