Sedona AZ (September 14, 2012) – In celebration of National Public Lands Day and to encourage a shared sense of land stewardship, the Forest Service announces another “fee free day”, Saturday, September 29, along with a volunteer trail restoration event.
Day use fees will be waived at all fee sites operated by the Forest Service under the Red Rock Pass. This includes access to Palatki and Honanki Ruins, V Bar B Cultural Site and sites along State Route 179.
The National Public Lands Day volunteer event will include a restoration project to help renovate damage that occurred from a recent 1/2 mile of unauthorized trail construction located in Sedona near Brewer Road. Volunteer trail work will include construction of erosion control features and “naturalizing” the damaged area.
Tools, drinks and snacks will be provided on site. Please wear long pants, boots, gloves, a hat and plenty of sunscreen. To participate, meet at the Christ Center Wesleyan Church parking lot at 9:00 a.m., located on Brewer Road. The event will last until around 2:00 p.m.
All volunteers are welcome and will be entered into a raffle to win various hiking and biking equipment, donated by local clubs and businesses.
This event is generously supported by Over the Edge Sports, Absolute Bikes, Sedona Bike and Bean, The Hike House, Verde Valley Cycling Coalition, and Sedona Mountain Bike Club.
