Trail Days - Volunteer
for the day for a Free Annual Membership!
Work days are planned for November 17, 18, and December 1. To sign up, please email Cort Hansen or call him during business hours at 603-356-3042. Cort has requested that anyone interested in volunteering work time in exchange for a season pass contact him directly so that he can discuss what needs to be done
and what equipment may be needed.
Plan to bring lunch and water, warm clothes, work gloves, and lopper tool if you have them. Work will begin at 8 am and continue until about 4:30 each day. The numbers of volunteers will be limited, so this is a first come/first serve basis. Additional volunteer days may be scheduled, but they will be weather dependent. We thank everyone interested in helping with seasonal preparations.
