Next Monthly Meeting is Monday, 22 July
Kevin Deiters presents an Introduction to Trail Maintenance
The program is based upon the curriculum developed by the Pacific Crest Trail Association and Mr. Dieters’ years of experience building and maintaining hiking trails with the Central Texas Trail Tamers. The presentation provides a discussion of safety awareness in trail work; basic understanding of hillside hydrology; and an overview of trail maintenance techniques.

If it’s not on the VMS list or the projects list…
If a volunteer activity is not specifically listed by name it is most likely not an approved project. Please do not arbitrarily enter hours for an unapproved project under any code. This causes us to be flagged during state audits and creates many steps of extra work for your VMS team. Contact us before volunteering to determine if an unlisted project qualifies for reportable hours. Questions? Email the VMS projects manager or VMS Data Manager
