Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation to Host National Trails Day Event

By Beacon Staff

The Bob Marshall Wilderness Foundation will host a volunteer trails event in celebration of American Hiking Society’s 20th annual National Trails Day on June 2.

The event will be held at the Stanton Lake trail in the Great Bear Wilderness south of Glacier National Park from 8 a.m to 4 p.m. Volunteers will help with seasonal upkeep, clearing logs and brush and other trail maintenance. After a day on the trail, the BMWF will treat all volunteers to a tailgate BBQ at the Hungry Horse Ranger Station from 4 to 6 p.m.

BMWF will provide more detailed project information, including a suggested packing list and directions, upon registration. Visit the BMWF website to register or contact Rebecca Powell at [email protected] or call 387-3808.

National Trails Day is a long-standing national celebration of America’s magnificent trail system and its countless supporters and volunteers. This year’s slogan, America’s Largest TRAILgating Party, is an open invitation to all Americans to get outside and connect with local hiking clubs, outdoor retailers, local parks and recreation departments or federal land managing agencies.
