Inspired by the REI Cooperative Action Network, a network geared to encourage the movement to protect and share life outdoors, the DIY Trail Clean Up Series offers a variety of ways to help protect local outdoor places.
This National Trails Day (and beyond), when you're out on the trails... help keep them clean!
We'd love to hear how you're celebrating, let us know here!
National Trails Day takes place every year on the first Saturday in June. It is a day focused on advocacy and trail service. NTD is a powerful tool for helping maintain trails and also for spreading awareness of all the important work that goes into building and maintaining the trails we know and love. When I worked with a trails non-profit in Alaska, National Trails Day was always a focal point of our year. It was fun to know that when we gathered to work on trails on that day we were doing so with thousands of volunteers across the country coming together to advocate, maintain, and clean up our public lands and trails.
We hope you enjoy your walk!
