TUSAYAN, Ariz. - The Kaibab National Forest and the Arizona Trail Association are seeking volunteers to assist with maintenance of the Arizona National Scenic Trail on the Tusayan Ranger District June 16 and 17.

Volunteers will conduct trail maintenance on the Coconino Rim section of the trail between Russell Tank and Grandview Lookout. Work will include clearing fallen trees, trimming tree limbs, cleaning water drainage features, and removing rock, pines needles and other debris from the trail.

Any person interested in volunteering is welcome. Those under age 18 should be accompanied by an adult. Trail work will take place all day June 16 and until noon on June 17. Volunteers are invited to camp on the Tusayan Ranger District at the junction of forest roads 310 and 302 on the nights of June 15 and 16, if they so choose.

The Kaibab National Forest and Arizona Trail Association will provide tools and hard hats. A large water tank will be available at the campsite. Volunteers should bring food, snacks, day pack, and appropriate clothing. Leather boots are encouraged, but closed-toe shoes are required. Pants and longsleeved shirts are recommended.

The Arizona National Scenic Trail is a continuous, 800+ mile diverse and scenic trail across Arizona from Mexico to Utah. The Arizona Trail Association's mission is to build, maintain, promote, protect and sustain the trail as a unique encounter with the land.

Individuals interested in volunteering should contact Joe Welke, Tusayan Ranger District, at (928) 635-8219, or Tom Coulson, with the Arizona Trail Association, at (480) 326-0459.
