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

This ALL DAY 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 Mesa Trail runs from the Chautauqua Meadow in central Boulder south to Eldorado Springs, a total of 13 miles. It is a beautiful, popular and heavily trafficked trail. Volunteers will be restoring tread, cleaning drainage structures, and/or brushing (cutting plants back that are leaning into the trail). This project will be accessing a relatively hard-to-reach section of trail, so enthusiasm for lots of hiking is required. Details (i.e. where to meet) will be sent via email. PROJECT DIFFICULTY - DIFFICULT While the trail is not particularly steep, the area we will be working is far from the trailhead. Volunteers should be comfortable hiking 6 miles with tools in hand and a backpack holding water, snacks, and gear. Tools include shovels, pick mattocks, and buckets. PREPARATION FOR THE DAY **THREE quarts of water or camel packs** **Snacks & required LUNCH for the day** **Work gloves** **Face Covering** **Sunglasses or other eye protection ** --Sturdy boots (No lightweight shoes, or “five-finger” types of shoes.) --Long pants --Hat and sunscreen (most of this trail is VERY exposed and sunny) --Rain jacket --A short or long sleeved T-shirt --Personal first aid kit, if you have one (OSMP will have a group first aid kit) --Backpack to carry personal items --Clothing appropriate for weather conditions IMPORTANT!! ** Due to the Coronavirus and to minimize surface contact, OSMP WILL NOT provide personal protective gear (PPE), including face coverings, extra water or food for this event.
