MROSD trail work season

We are working with MROSD to set up some ROMP/MROSD trail work dates to build and or maintain trail for Methuselah or Giant Salamander on May 20th. We will have additional dates in June, July and August.

These are great events limited to 12 volunteers. You get to work hands on with the pros, and are terrific learning experiences. Last year we started a major armoring project on the reroute of Giant Salamander. It involved some pretty cool Rock transportation using ropes and guernies.

Other projects will include El Corte de Madera creek trail, and these will result in hopefully only temporary closures this summer. They staff a number of Open Space Technicians who build and maintain trail as well. Craig Beckman and his team do a terrific job.

If you are interested in volunteering for the above please email Paul McKowan at volunteer@openspace.org. They may also have other trailwork events going on that are not specific to ROMP.

Also, they rely to a certain degree on volunteers to report deadfall, and other trail problems through their
trail patrol program.
