Learn Trail Building Skills for Your Future and Our Parks!

Wild Basin is hosting the Central Texas Trail Tamers in teaching a FREE class on building and maintaining the trail systems that public lands, like Wild Basin, offer to the public.  The CTTT will offer two “Introduction to Trail Maintenance” classes before they move on to advance trail techniques.  The three courses currently scheduled (see schedules below) use a curriculum developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and U.S. Forest Service Trails Specialist John Schubert.  In them you will learn “how trails work”, basic design concepts, safety protocols, and how to gain “trail eyes”.  If you are looking for a volunteer opportunity where you can gain a new skill to add to your resume and are interested in the fields of land management or public land conservation and stewardship then you will find these workshops beneficial to your career.  Please, RSVP and tell me what you like in your breakfast taco!
