Volunteer with Washington Trail Association for a fun and rewarding way to give back to the places you love to hike. Trails across Washington need our help more than ever, including Ridgefield NWR’s Oaks to Wetlands Trail. WTA will be working with the refuge to re-do our trail network after large-scale restoration efforts that have obliterated much of the old trails. WTA has several days scheduled out here to build the new trails — depending on the day, expect to clear new trail corridor, create new tread, or fine-tune temporary trails into actual tread surface (as well as learn about sustainable trail alignment). This is a great project to see a new trail come to life!
What it Takes to Do This Work Party:
No experience is necessary—just bring a great attitude for working with a team! WTA provides the training and tools you need. Expect to be physically active at your own pace for up to 6 hours on uneven terrain.
