Trail Workday


Join Story County Conservation for a TEAM (Trail Enhancement and Management) Day on Saturday, May 19, beginning at 9 a.m. Volunteers will be controlling vegetation along the Skunk River Greenbelt. If you like to work outdoors, don’t mind hard work and want hands-on experience – we’d like to see you on the trail!


We’ll meet at Pleasant Valley Church (56971 170th St., Ames) and hit the trails. Volunteers are asked to bring a water bottle and should dress for the weather. Long pants, gloves and boots or sturdy shoes are strongly recommended. TEAM Days typically last two to three hours. Registration is required by 4 p.m. on Thursday, May 17, to ensure enough tools and refreshments for everyone.


Registration is available at www.storycountyconservation.org or by calling our office at 515-232-2516, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., Monday – Friday.
