Volunteers are invited to serve on Saturday, June 2 in the Lincoln Ranger District


Hungry Horse, MT—May 4, 2018 —  On Saturday, June 2, the Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation will launch the start of their summer Field Season 2018 with a National Trails Day in Lincoln, MT.

This event is in partnership with the USFS to complete a variety of trails and trailhead-related tasks including drainage work, clearing, and gravel hauling at one of the most popular trailheads leading into the Bob. Volunteers will use pulaskis for tread work, loppers for brushing the trail corridor, and crosscut saws to cut fallen trees.

Volunteers will meet at the Lincoln Ranger Station located just outside the town of Lincoln, MT at 8 am. From there, the group will caravan to the Indian Meadows trailhead for a day of service to keep public lands in public hands. After a day of work, volunteers will be treated to a tailgate BBQ at the Indian Meadows Cabin from 4-6 pm. The event is free and friendly to all ages, though advanced registration is required.

By coordinating a wide array of trail activities on a single day, National Trails Day, organized by the American Hiking Society, connects new trail users and helps existing trail enthusiasts with local clubs and organizations to create trail advocates and stewards. Since its inception over 20 years ago, BMWF volunteers have cleared and maintained over 5,000 miles of trail in the Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex and adjacent areas.

This event is made possible through the generosity of BMWF volunteers, donors, and community partners.
