There is a volunteer work party on Saturday, August 24 at 9am, meeting at the Elbow Ranger Station, to build bridges on Bobcat trail.

Many of us get a lot of use out of this area and it takes a TON of work to get trails as buff as the West Bragg Creek teams gets and keeps them. We owe them a great big thanks and I can't think of a better way of repaying them than by helping out.

Every work party is a little different but generally there is a range of tasks to be done, if you don't think you're up for heavy lifting, please sign up anyways.

Bike + Helmet are optional, we may be able to do a ride after building but usually I find the trail work is exercise enough for the day.

Required Items to Bring:
-Appropriate clothing - NO SANDALS
-Work gloves
Recommended Items to Bring:
Use our Event Checklists to make sure you have everything you need.
- Optional Bike, Helmet and LOCK
- Hand tools (saw, hammer, shovel)
