GSENM Service Project II
April 14, 2018 - April 15, 2018
Join the Field Volunteers in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument for a two-day service project this April. We will work with The Escalante Interagency Office – selected as a Leave No Trace hotspot in 2018 – to address trail and travel impacts along the Burr Trail and Wolverine Road.
Our work will continue efforts to manage high impact areas in the monument, bolstering minimalist infrastructure to ensure protection of fragile, localized ecosystems.
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.
