Virtual: Superior Hiking Trail's Sustainable Trail Building

Increase your knowledge of sustainable trail building and design techniques by attending one or more of 4 virtual and 4 on-trail trainings that explore two topics: "Developing Your Trail Eyes - Assessing and Developing a Plan for Trail Sustainability", and "People On, Water Off - Building & Maintaining a Resilient Superior Hiking Trail." Resilient trails react to and interpret the landscapes through which they pass. Trail stewardship asks us to see and assess how the trail is functioning not through our eyes, but through the Trails eyes. Virtual trainings take place Thursday and Friday August 5 and 6, from 7pm - 8:30pm, and Friday and Saturday, August 6 and 7, from 8am - 9am. You are welcome to sign up even if you have never volunteered before or if you are just curious to see what efforts are being made to improve the general quality of the Superior Hiking Trail experience. On-trail trainings take place Saturday, August 14 in West Duluth, and Sunday, August 15, near Split Rock Lighthouse State Park. Morning sessions are 8am to noon. Afternoon sessions are 1pm to 5pm. Required tools to bring are your trail eyes and a tennis ball. Details and registration is at the link below.
