Give back to the Wilderness this month

Colleen O’Neil

The Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and their partners are looking for volunteers to join them for a fun weekend of camping and trail restoration on the Cathedral Lake and Electric Pass Trails on August 28-30.

Volunteers will hike 2.8 miles to meet at a backcountry campsite near Cathedral Lake on Friday evening. On Saturday and Sunday, they will reconstruct, repair and restore damaged sections of the Cathedral Lake and Electric Pass Trails. All meals, water and sanitation supplies will be supplied. Just bring camping gear, clothing and a good attitude.

Each time you volunteer with RFOV on a public or group project, you will be entered to win a Yeti 575 Enduro mountain bike or a road bike from Ute City Cycles. The more you volunteer, the more chances you have to win. Participating in full-day projects earns you two entries, and half-day projects earn you one entry.

RFOV promotes stewardship of our public lands by engaging the community in volunteer trail and restoration projects.

This group believes that preservation and enhancement of our natural surroundings is the responsibility of every member of our regional community.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley.
