SALT LAKE CITY — Outdoor enthusiasts are being urged to celebrate National Trails Day on Saturday, June 3, by sprucing up the Bonneville Shoreline Trail between Mount Olympus and Heughs Canyon.
The Cottonwood Canyons Foundation is looking for 100 volunteers to help between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Participants must be 13 years or older for trail work, or 8 years or older for weed pulling and litter cleanup. All minors must be accompanied by an adult. Interested individuals are asked to preregister by 6 p.m. Thursday, June 1, at cottonwoodcanyons.org.
All participants will receive an event T-shirt, and a light breakfast and lunch. All necessary tools and instruction will be provided.
Volunteers will meet at the south end of the Utah Transit Authority park-and-ride lot, 6200 S. Wasatch Blvd. Volunteers will be shuttled to the trailhead in groups.
Participants are encouraged to wear long pants, boots or other sturdy, closed-toe shoes, and work gloves, and to bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and water bottle.
The project is supported in partnership by the Cottonwood Canyons Foundation, the U.S. Forest Service, REI, Wasatch Mountain Club, Salt Lake County, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Climbers Alliance, and Wasatch Legacy Project Partnership.
