National Public Lands Day:
The Forest Service and SAGA are teaming up to celebrate National
Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 24th. The day will begin
outdoors at the large bus parking lot by the Mendenhall Glacier
Visitor Center, (Look for signs), where volunteers and coordinators
will assemble for a light breakfast and quick orientation. Everyone
will then head to the Pavillion area at the visitor center for the
ribbon cutting at the newly completed Nugget Falls Trail!
Trail work will follow immediatly after the ribbon cutting. The work
will involve obliterating the old Nugget Falls Trail that visitors
have been using. There will be a wide range of trail work activities,
something for everyone at all levels of ability. Parents are
ENCOURAGED to bring their children with them and be a part of the
process to return a trail corridor back to nature!
Trail work will wrap up around 12:45, and all participants are invited
back to the Mendenhall Visitor Center for a group photo followed by a
special Power Point presentation celebrating the 25 years of SAGA.
Light lunch to follow.
Volunteers are asked to dress appropriately, though all tools will be
provided by SAGA and the Forest Service.
*We ask that children be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
Participants may be asked to sign a release waiver before beginning
Everyone is encouraged to be involved, so spread the word to all of
your friends! If you have any questions please contact Sara at
