VTS Workday: McKay Community Forest

September 5, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm

Join Volunteer Trail Stewards (VTS) for “Delta Force” weekly workdays at the McKay! This crew meets every week for more labor-intensive trail construction projects within the McKay Community Forest.

When: Every Tuesday & Wednesday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. 
Please aim to arrive by 9 a.m. so we can secure all tools and supplies before heading out on the trails.

Where: Meet at the storage container located at Redwood Fields on Fern St. (off of Walnut Drive) in Cutten

Why: Build a lasting impact in our community by helping construct new trails that support a diverse range of recreational opportunities for all ages and abilities. Learn new skills, enjoy time outdoors, and bridge new connections with fellow trail enthusiasts!

*Lunch will be provided!* With special thanks to Los Bagels, Ramone’s Bakery & Café,  Murphy’s Markets, Eureka Natural Foods, and Babe’s Pizza & Pasta

  • Volunteers can show up for one or all of the weekly workdays, and are encouraged to participate regularly.
  • Volunteers are encouraged to arrive 15 mins. early so that enough tools and food can be made available to all.
  • All interested volunteers will be required to sign a one-time liability release form that will cover all subsequent workdays.
  • Volunteers should wear appropriate work clothing, boots and bring a small day pack for carrying food and water as the varying project locations will require hiking to access (generally 0.5 mi to 2 mi).
  • All tools, gloves, trail and safe working techniques training will be provided by the county and VTS

To get involved, contact:
