WWF Trail Work Training brought to you by Rocky Mountain Trees and Landscaping
June 15 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$10
Join CBMBA’s Women Work Force (WWF) for a day of trail work training. No experience is necessary for this training, but experience is also welcome! Wherever you’re at, this session will offer you something to improve your trail building knowledge, experience, and leadership. We’ll start the day with a classroom session and then move out into the field to get our hands dirty!
Cat Gruener is a trail builder and project manager for Azimuth Trailcrafts. She has been designing and building trails professionally for the past 4 years, focusing mostly in Colorado creating bike optimized singletrack. Her diverse background includes a degree in Equine Science and she is a certified bicycle mechanic. Before becoming a trail builder, she worked as a bicycle mechanic for 13 years, 6 of those years as an instructor of bike mechanics at the Barnett Bicycle Institute. She spends her free time riding mountain bikes, horses and hiking. Cat is very excited for the opportunity to share her passion and knowledge of trail building with other women who want to learn!
For the classroom session, please just come ready to learn and bring any snacks you need to sustain you. We’ll break for lunch, but feel free to bring on and hang out while we eat. Meet at the Chamber of Commerce (4-way stop) at 9 a.m.
For the field session, please be prepared with closed-toed shoes, durable clothes, sun protection, food, water, and work gloves.
Please let us know if you can make it so we know what to plan for: email firstname.lastname@example.org. (But if you don’t RSVP, we’ll still let you come anyway.)
Thank you to Rocky Mountain Trees & Landscaping, Inc. for making this event possible!
Here are a few last minute details:
- Meet at the Chamber of Commerce at 9 a.m.
- We’ll be done around 4 p.m.
- The plan is to have an inside classroom session in the morning, then break for lunch around noon for about 45 minutes, then carpool to Baxter’s Gulch in the afternoon for field work. We’ll have to walk a bit on Baxter’s, so be prepared for that.
- This plan might change if we see weather rolling in, so please be prepared to be flexible with the schedule (like, have food with you; don’t plan to go out for lunch)
- I’ll have coffee/pastries for you in the morning and some Clif snacks in the afternoon.
- I’ve suggested a donation of $10 to support this event, but that’s up to you
- We’ll finish off the day with Ska Beer and a small shwag giveaway to say thanks for devoting a day to our trails! We know this is NO SMALL THING (see how I made that BIG).
