From the Friends of Kananaskis:
The Jewel Pass hiking and mountain biking trail need your help. We are in need of strong volunteers this coming Saturday, Aug. 31, to assist with rebuilding a set of hiking and mountain biking trails.
Volunteers are needed for the Jewel Pass trail (accessed from Barrier Dam) to assist with repairing or building new trail suitable for both hiking and mountain biking. trail rebuilding. This is medium to heavy work (what we like to call work for elk and grizzly type volunteers) and will include shaping the sides of trails, creating drainage, moving loose rocks and debris. tamping tread and assisting with bridgework.
You can volunteer as an individual or as a group. We are also happy to accept teenage volunteers, over the age of 12. Advise us if your teenager wishes to participate unaccompanied and we will e-mail to you a consent form to sign.
If you already have alternate plans for this Saturday but are considering changing these in order to come and help, confirm with us that volunteers are still required for the date before you change important plans.
It is imperative to sign up before you come to insure we have adequate supervision and tools available. To volunteer for this projects, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Help us to manage the many volunteer requests that we are processing by putting in the subject line: “Jewel Pass, Aug 31”.
