Western States Trail Work Schedule Meeting Change!

April 17, 2012

Hello everyone,

Due to a change in work priorities and recent precipitation we are changing our work location and meeting place for this Saturday's (April 21) trail work day. That information is provided below. If you plan on attending and haven't responded please RSVP at

For all remaining dates, we will be on National Forest land. 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. Instructions and a link to the PDF form are provided at . You can provide a scanned signature and send to the e-mail address provided or print, sign and fax or mail. Or, to sign the form electronically (digital ID) click on the link in the signature field and follow the directions for creating a new digital ID. You can then save and send a copy of the PDF file. Please remember this is very important to the agency and they are important to us!
