National Public Lands Day volunteers contribute to historic trail project, improve public lands across county

The 24th annual National Public Lands Day kicked off at 7 a.m. on Saturday with five projects for volunteers to choose from. This year’s event also featured the historic change on East Shore Trail to allow bikes, the first trail in a national park to ever do so. Other projects included planting trees at Hot Sulphur Springs Town Park, cleaning up the Colorado River by boat or raft, maintenance to the Continental Divide Trail and constructing a connection on the Sherman Creek Trail. Organizers estimated 200 to 250 volunteers would participate this year to help improve and maintain public lands and contribute work that government agencies don’t have the resources for.
