Mt. Charleston Seeks Trail Host Volunteers
Published on Mon, Apr 22, 2013 (9:52 a.m.)Las Vegas, NV -- The U.S. Forest Service at Mount Charleston is looking for volunteers to be trail hosts, providing ecosystem and safety information to hikers on the trails this summer. Trail hosts will help visitors have fun on the trails while reducing the impact on the forest environment. Experience volunteering in a similar setting is not a requirement. Volunteers should be at least 18 years old and enjoy hiking and talking to people. Volunteer hours will be on the weekends and holidays, and the average shift will range between two and four hours. A minimum commitment of two shifts per month is required and volunteers are needed until the end of September. An orientation for interested volunteers is scheduled at 7 p.m. April 30 at REI, 2220 Village Walk Dr #150 and May 7 at REI, 710 S. Rampart Blvd. For more information, call Cody Dix at 702-515-5408 or visit gomtcharleston.com/volunteer.html.
The volunteer program at the Spring Mountains National Recreation Area is offered through a partnership between the US Forest Service, the Great Basin Institute, and Southern Nevada Conservancy.
