104.3 & 104.7

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in where nature may heal and cheer and give strength to the body and soul.              

        ~ John Muir

All of the lifting, bending, pulling, shoveling, chopping, and yanking we do on our work days, takes a toll on our bodies.

Physical Therapist Dena Manka has volunteered to talk about and demonstrate proper technique, preventative care, and post-work day strategies.

Tuesday, August 26th 5:45 - 7 p.m

in the Gymnastics Room of the Arcata Community Center.

Snacks provided.

All volunteers from any Volunteer Trail Steward location are welcome.

You can RSVP (not necessary but helpful) by e-mail directly to Rees.

The Volunteer Trail Stewards is a project of the Humboldt Trails Council, Friends of the Dunes, City of Arcata, City of Eureka, and the County of Humboldt.


Volunteers 55+ years of age might be interested in joining a new VTS effort with RSVP, a program of the Volunteer Center of the Redwoods and the Area 1 Agency on Aging...  RSVP is a national volunteer program providing the following benefits to those 55+ who sign up and report monthly hours: limited mileage reimbursement, supplemental volunteer insurance, invitation to their annual Recognition event, and support from RSVP staff to get the word out about Volunteer Trail Stewards.

If you are interested, please contact Stacy or Rees.


Get Your VTS Vest!

Volunteer Trail Steward vests are available for $30 or with regular and devoted service, you may earn one, or discounts are available.  VTS are encouraged to wear these whenever you are on the Hammond, at the Friends of the Dunes Nature Center or in Arcata’s Community Forest.  Not only do they provide some protection against the weather but they help us be more visible.
