Volunteer trail work will begin at 9 a.m. and run until 4 p.m., with free coffee donated by Seattle’s Best. Volunteers can help the TRTA build trail for the first time this season. Volunteers of all skill levels and physical abilities are encouraged to participate — no prior experience is necessary. Volunteers will receive free lunch sponsored by Recreational Equipment Inc.
The event will conclude at 4 p.m. with a volunteer party at Explore Tahoe including free food and drink. This event opens the third trail-building season of a multi-year project, which will connect the Tahoe Rim Trail (TRT) with Van Sickle State Park, reroute the TRT off paved roads.
This workday is a great way to give back to your community and meet other trail enthusiasts. Volunteers must wear long-sleeved shirts, long pants, boots and work gloves; bring sunscreen, bug spray, water and a backpack. TRTA will provide hard hats, trail building tools and crew leaders. The trail work day will meet at the Harrah’s rear parking lot at 9 a.m.
Leave No Trace Activities will be from 10 a.m. to noon, where the group will explore Lake Tahoe and learn about the seven Leave No Trace Principles. The hands-on activities in this program are appropriate for all ages from kindergarten through high school and adults. Leave Activities will take place at Explore Tahoe, 4114 Lake Tahoe Blvd., South Lake Tahoe, Calif.
On Sunday, June 3, there will be a full moon hike from 7 to 9 p.m. at Van Sickle State Park. Experience the peace, tranquility and beauty of the Van Sickle State Park at dusk. Expect a casually paced hike for all ages, while slowing down to enjoy the flora, fauna and to explore with your nighttime senses. This free event is for TRTA members only.
