Trips are filling up make sure you sign up for upcoming trips before they fill up. We now have the photo galleries filled all the way back to 2010. Check out the frequently asked questions. The Yeti (our new box truck) is here and we need to give it some personality to match its name. We would like to hear your thoughts about the site and have any pictures you might have from any events. Now go out there and sign up, more hands makes easy work.

 

New opportunity: We are considering adding a trip including six people that will be in Yosemite helping with meadow restoration, campfire removal or weed abatement projects please let me know if anyone is interested.

 

Spring Giving Campaign is still going on.  Dr. Eric Hansen has added another $2,500 to the $5000 match so we have $7,500 available to match until May 30th  Get a tax write off and double or quadruple your money at the same time, check with your employer and see if they match donations. You donate $50, your company matches$50=$100, Eric Hansen matches $100 = $200 donated from your $50. Donate at our web site, trailcrew.org or by mail at 2020 E. Birkhead Fresno, Ca 93730. Thank you to those that donate, thanks to those that are about to donate, every dollar we receive makes a difference. Please contact us if you have any business or organization that might be willing to sponsor a trip or donate to the Trail Crew. It is OK if you ask your employer to support our Trail Crew all they can say is no.

 

Volunteers needed for the Willow House and pre-season projects: We need volunteers to get everything ready for the season, tools, equipment the Yeti, trailers, and the food pantry. Please contact us as soon as possible and see how you can help, need to prime the machine. Anyone have a running riding mower they would like to donate, Bob Geertz the volunteer who is killing himself trying top mow the land around the Willow Lodge would thank you for ever. .

 

The Crew Leader training was great we have a great group of leaders this year, I will be putting up some pictures in a couple of days. With this core group of volunteer leaders we are on our way to creating a great organization, All of the volunteers involved are helping to creating something great, have a great time out on our public lands and remember live by our motto, Safety, Fun, Work
