Every year on the first Saturday in June, volunteers and public land agencies nationwide team up to celebrate National Trails Day.  This year on June 1st the City of Albuquerque Open Space Division and the Open Space Alliance will host a morning of trail projects and trash cleanup at the Elena Gallegos Open Space. REGISTRATION REQUIRED! (See below.) We’ll meet at 8:30AM at the “double shelter” (map) to enjoy donated snacks and some social time. Volunteers will sign waivers and choose their project for the day, then we’ll head out on the trails. At around noon we’ll gather at the Kiwanis shelter (map) for a free lunch!  Afterwards we’ll raffle off prizes donated by local businesses.

PARKING IS LIMITED, SO PLEASE CARPOOL IF POSSIBLE. Arriving early leaves a better chance of finding a parking spot nearby – otherwise it’s a lovely hike to the double shelter.

Children under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.  Sorry, no pets.

Please bring sturdy shoes (no sandals), work gloves, water, sunglasses and sunblock. A hat and long pants are also recommended. Dress in layers for a cool start and warmer temps later.

To sign up, visit One Albuquerque Volunteers or contact Volunteer Program Coordinator Jenny Blackmore.

If you would like to sign up as a group, please contact the Volunteer Program Coordinator.
