What is Wildlands Trailblazers?
The Wildlands Trust Trailblazers program is designed to connect people who love the land to meaningful projects throughout our service area. With projects ranging from trail stabilization and erosion control to using GPS units to mark trails and preserve boundaries, the Trailblazers program offers an opportunity for everyone to contribute to the management of our shared natural resources.

The morning shift will be a Project Work Day. Project work days can be physically demanding, requiring hiking into a project site and performing a variety of physical tasks. The afternoon shift will be a Venture Day. Venture days are based more on opportunities for education and are not as physically demanding.
 
All Trailblazers events are open to the public. All required tools and equipment are provided by Wildlands Trust. All skill levels, abilities, and interests are encouraged and welcomed! No experience is necessary, but you are encouraged to read through the event description to ensure that you feel comfortable with the day's goals.
