Summary
Help build a new trail at Garden Park, an area known for its dinosaur bone discoveries and paleontology history.
Description

STEWARDSHIP SITE

Garden Park, in south central Colorado, is situated in a high desert ecosystem with unique rock formations and stunning scenery of the Arkansas River Valley, Fourmile Creek, and the Sangre De Christo Mountains.  The area is known for its dinosaur bone discoveries and paleontology history.

VOLUNTEER PROJECT

Help celebrate National Public Lands Day! Fremont County and Canon City have very few public trails, yet there is a high demand for them. Help create new opportunities for hiking, equestrian, and mountain biking in the region by constructing a new trail at Garden Park.  You'll have the opportunity to learn trail construction techniques as well as how to build rock walls and steps, while working in a unique setting steeped with history. The project requires an easy hike of approximately .5 mile to the work site.
