... TO SIGNUP FOR THE PREMIER TRAIL SCHOOL IN NEW ENGLAND FOR 2008 IS TODAY.

NEMBA's Trail School Weekend
May 17-18
Wendell State Forest, Wendell MA


Have you wondered what makes for an excellent trail and want to learn
how to build one? Perhaps you've been to some of NEMBA's trail care
events, and you'd like to hone your skills to take on larger, more
complicated projects. Come to our Trail School Weekend at Wendell
State Forest in Massachusetts' Pioneer Valley.

The school will focus on both basic and advanced techniques for
building and caring for trails. It's a must for any volunteer
interested in learning the science of trail design, trail construction
and maintenance. Instruction will be led by NEMBA trail experts as
well as IMBA's Director of Field Operations, Scott Linnenburger.

Topics will include: new trail alignment and construction techniques,
trail assessment and rehabiliation, boardwalk construction, rock
armoring trails, as well as seminars on trail maintenance, working
with volunteers and trail project execution.

Not only will there be much learning to be had, but there will also be
time for plenty of riding on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This will
be a fully catered event and we'll be camping at lovely Wendell State
Forest. Don't forget to bring your bike or hiking boots! There will
be some great riding and hiking each day.
