GSENM Service Project
March 9, 2018 - March 10, 2018
Join the Field Volunteers in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument for a two-day service project this March. We will work with The Escalante Interagency Office – selected as a Leave No Trace hotspot in 2018 – to address trail and travel impacts in the Calf Creek Recreation Area and atop Spencer Flat.
Following up on last fall’s Service Project managing social trails above and below Lower Calf Creek Falls, we will continue our work managing this high-use area for a variety of user impacts.
This Project is rated:
Level 2 – Our most common trip incorporates mid- to heavy-lifting, work in remote landscapes at varying elevations, an increased diversity of tool use, and an emphasis on physical fitness and hiking competency.
