This month we're working in several locations that need some special attention and we'd love to have your help! Join us for a day full of safety, fun and work, and make your mark on the trails you love.
No experience is needed to join a work party, and anyone is welcome. We'll teach you what you need to know and find the right job for you. For more information on what to expect when you join us on trail, check out our FAQ page.
Southwest Washington - Coyote Wall
The unique soils and climate of the Columbia River Gorge have created unique plant and animal communities, including many endemic and rare wildflowers that deliver a spectacular succession of colorful displays.
Come volunteer among oak forests, open meadows, spring wildflowers, cliffs and dramatic vistas of the Columbia River Gorge. We are continuing work on a new route that traverses the northern edge of the lands near Coyote Wall, as well as installing trail signs along the way.
Eastern Washington - Iller Creek Conservation Area
Join us for a day of trail improvements and maintenance within Spokane's Iller Creek Conservation Area. This lush riparian corridor is home to a multitude of animal species, including white-tailed deer and Rocky Mountain elk.
WTA needs your help to reconstruct a steeply eroded section of trail that runs along the east ridge of Iller Creek Trail near the top. The work will involve digging tread, brushing, drainage work and other activities. Join us on the 28th and perhaps glimpse a red-tailed hawk soaring overhead.
Puget Sound - Suiattle River Trail
Come help out for a day (or more) in the popular Suiattle River drainage. This gorgeous trail winds above the Suiattle River through old-growth and mature forest recovering from an old burn from the 1920’s.
Lined with yew, Doug-firs and western hemlock, there will be plenty of shade to rest in while you work. We'll focus on logging out but may also do some tread repair and brushing along the way.
