Western States Trail Work Schedule

January 8 2011


It's that time of year again to get out the Pulaskis and McLeods, chainsaws and clippers and give back to one of the world's greatest trails. Whether you're looking for a way to earn your service requirement hours or just want to help, there's sure to be a job for you. We've provided the dates, times and meeting locations of the planned events below. Please RSVP at your earliest convenience to

Please remember that the United States Forest Service requires that you fill out, sign and send the Volunteer Liability Release Form (this is not the WS service requirement form) to the agency office before you can volunteer. You will not need a form for the first two scheduled work days but you will for March and all other dates. Accordingly, please have your form submitted no later than Friday, March 9. Instructions and a link to the PDF form are provided at You can provide an electronic signature and send to the e-mail address provided or print, sign and fax or mail. Again, this is very important to the agency and they are important to us!
