Youth Projects "One-Day" - High School Youth (14-18)

This morning project is for high school students only (14-18 years old). Join us for a safe, fun, and meaningful opportunity to get outside, make a difference, and meet new people. We are following CDC/WHO guidelines and state of Colorado standards to minimize the spread of COVID-19. PROJECT The Community Ditch trail is a popular 7 mile trail south of Boulder, near Eldorado Springs. OSMP and volunteers are constructing a more sustainable re-route of the trail that connects Marshall Valley to Cowdrey Draw. We'll be cutting tread on the new trail, building a sustainable backslope, constructing grade dips to move water off the trail, and moving dirt away from the tread. PROJECT DIFFICULTY - MODERATE Volunteers should be comfortable hiking 1 -2 miles with a backpack holding water, snacks, and gear. Volunteers should be prepared for trail work throughout the morning in hot weather with very little shade. Project will involve hiking over uneven terrain, bending, lifting, and using hand tools.
