Western States Trail April 30th Work Day Reminder

April 18 2010

New Federal Agency Volunteer Form Requirement!

Please follow the link below

With the storms of March behind us, it's time to hit the trail to clear fallen trees and improve sections eroded from heavy rain and low snow. With the run and ride quickly approaching, there is plenty of work to do!

Our work now takes us to sections of the trail located on U.S. government land. The United States Forest Service has instituted a new policy requiring every volunteer to fill out a form and send it to the agency for approval. As time is running short, please go to to access the form, follow the instructions and send immediately. We've tried to make this as painless and efficient as possible. It is very important that you send this form before you volunteer!

We can still use more help, so join us if you can. If you haven't responded, please do so at As we'll be meeting 18 miles east of Auburn in Foresthill, please note the 8:30 am start time to give you a little extra time to arrive. The meeting place is Foresthill Joe's Coffee Shop (directions below.)

It's too soon to predict the weather but come prepared for variable temps. Please remember to bring water, snacks and gloves. Tools will be available but bring your own loppers or handsaw if you'd like.

We'll wrap up at about 1:30 PM and regroup for lunch.

This will be the final update unless a cancellation is necessary due to weather. We look forward to seeing everyone on Saturday, April 30.
