Youth Projects "One-Day" - Middle and High School Youth (11-13, 14-18)

This trail construction volunteer project is for middle and high school aged youth (11-18 years old). Join us for a safe, fun, and meaningful opportunity to get outside, make a difference, and meet new people. This project is in conjunction with the adult volunteer project, also for National Public Lands Day, working on the Mesa Trail Reroute. The youth volunteer project ends at 1 PM, however, youth are welcome to stay on site and continue to work with other volunteers until 4 PM. During this project, we will follow CDC/WHO guidelines and state of Colorado standards to minimize the spread of COVID-19. PROJECT Volunteers will be helping to finish the construction of a new, more sustainable reroute of the Mesa Trail to celebrate National Public Lands Day! We will be closing down and restoring the old Mesa trail, while cutting tread on the new trail. PROJECT DIFFICULTY - STRENUOUS There is a 2+ mile, round trip hike to and from the project site.
