Washington Trails Association hosts youth work party on Tiger Mountain

February 21, 2012

By Staff

The Washington Trails Association is organizing an all-youth, volunteer work party to help repair the Tiger Mountain Trail near Issaquah.

Intended for those ages 13-18, the event begins at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 25 at the Tiger Mountain trailhead. Participants must sign up in advance.

One-day trail work parties are designed to provide a unique opportunity for younger volunteers to learn about trail maintenance and the trails in their communities while meeting other like-minded youths, according to a press release from the trails association.

Volunteers can earn up to eight hours of community service credit each day. After five work parties, volunteers can earn a special green hard hat with their name on it. All youths younger than 18 must submit a signed parental consent form.

Additionally, those younger than 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian during the work party.

The trails association also offers a series of one-day work parties that match up with the spring break schedules of most local schools. Spring break trail parties for the Issaquah School District will take place April 9-13 at Spring Lake/Lake Desire Park, a King County park near Renton.
