Last month I posted a blog about the Trails Forever Presentation that was to be given by the Friends of the Smokies at the REI store in Asheville. For whatever reason, the original date for that event has been cancelled, with the rescheduled date now being June 22nd.
The presentation will provide an overview of the "Trails Forever" trail-care program, and how rangers and volunteers are making great things happen in the Great Smoky Mountains.
Trails Forever is a unique opportunity for anyone who loves the Smokies and its trails to contribute to its lasting preservation - through donation or volunteer time ("sweat equity"). In conjunction with the presentation is a volunteer workday in the Smokies, now rescheduled for July 9th. REI and volunteers will be working with the Great Smoky Mountains National Park Trail Crew to improve drainage and trail tread. More details will be provided at the presentation.
The Friends presentation will be from 7:00 p.m. - 8:15 p.m., and is free. For more information, please click here.
