Join The Sierra Club for a Late Summer Volunteer Vacation
Who doesn't like hiking, biking and exploring in our national parks in the summer? Now there's a chance to help maintain them while you're at it. The Sierra Club's Volunteer Vacations give everyone the opportunity to give something back to the public lands we all love. Trips take place year-round at national parks across the USfrom the Grand Canyon to the Bartow-Pell Conservatory in NYCso there really is something for everyone.
The Sierra Club also makes an effort to design trips that will accommodate all levels of skill and stamina. Each vacation includes a variety of tasks which range from building and maintaining trails to helping archaeologists perform research duties.
Trips last about a week and include at least one day off to explore. Next month's trip will vist the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness in Montana and Idaho for six days. Volunteers will meet on Sunday, August 14th and will spend Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday working in the vicinity of Little Carleton Lake repairing trails. Wednesday will be a free day for a hike to Lolo Peak.
Most service trips include meals, lodging, on-trip transportation, guide services, and gratuities. Prices range between $495- $1,295. Transportation to the volunteer location is not included.
