Ray Shine, your e-mail does not appear to work!

First trip of the year with the High Sierra Volunteer Trail Crew!

This is an excellent opportunity for people to get experience camping with a group of highly experienced people. You need to know nothing. This is one in a series of volunteer projects to do need work clearing trails and fixing facilities. A number of ODC people participated last year, and I only got positive feedback from them! Apparently they give you so much food you'll have to go on a diet! From their information page:

TRIP DETAILS

Huntington Lake
May 19th to 22nd   thurs-sun  All, or part. 
The goal of this trip is to finish the painting of the bear boxes and finish building and installing the Trail Head signs. We still have many signs to construct and then we have to install them; this is no small task and will require a large group of volunteers. We have offered to repair the water system at the USFS site and at the Visitors center. We are also planning to paint the shower house and winter ranger cabin across from our campsite. Depending on weather and snow levels we will do recon and prep work for our trips later in the summer.
