Volunteers interested in assisting with construction and maintenance of a new trail at Western Carolina University are invited to participate in a free trail-building workshop on campus Saturday, March 24.
The workshop will include a required classroom session in The Cats Den in Brown Hall from 9 a.m. to noon led by a trail care crew from the International Mountain Bicycling Association, plus lunch and afternoon work on the trails. Participants also are invited to stay for a 7 p.m. screening of “Pedal Driven, a Bike-umentary” in the multipurpose room of WCU’s A.K. Hinds University Center.
The training will prepare volunteers to be part of the effort to build a five-mile, multiuse trail at WCU for walkers, hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers this spring and summer.
