Seek Out the Sierra Club for 300 Volunteer and Eco-Trips Close to Home

August 22, 2012 at 2:48 PM | by | ()

The Sierra Club has more than 300 eco-trips planned through next year, most of which give participants a chance to give back, while getting back to nature.

Among the club's upcoming outings is a service trip to the Popo Agie Wilderness in Wyoming where volunteers will repair trails and footbridges, build water bars, check dams, and fix rock walls. Guests will work for four days and have one day off to fish, hike, climb, and relax.

The trip will leave from Lander, Wyoming on Sunday, August 26. Transportation to Lander is not included but all meals and snacks during the week are covered in the trip price of $495 per person. Volunteers will also have to bring their own backpacks, preferably one they are comfortable hiking with for up to 11 miles, this is the approximate distance from the trailhead to the base camp. This is obviously not a trip for the casual hiker but for wilderness buffs, it's a great way to get out and do good.
