Would you like to volunteer in a meaningful way and help protect the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness? Would you like to volunteer on your own schedule, and hike a beautiful trail while at it?
As a trail ambassador, you will help us at the ABWF educate visitors at popular trails about proper LNT principles, bear protocols, and more! The A-B needs us to identify high-use areas and help inform folks to responsibly access them.
Volunteering as a TA, you will travel to a high-use trail head and greet people as they enter the wilderness, kindly checking in with them to make sure they have the knowledge they need to reduce impact. This year, we also welcome TA's to hike the first few miles of the trail to survey impact and continue to greet hikers.
If you have not been a trail ambassador with us before, we ask that you attend one of four, short training sessions (less than an hour, all starting at 10am, all on weekends):
6/6: Lake Fork Trail Head (outside of Red Lodge) 6/7: Pine Creek Lake Trail Head (near Livingston) 6/13: Billings River Front Park parking lot 6/14: E. Rosebud Trail Head
Let us know if you will be attending (either call, Facebook message, or email) so we can make sure we don't exceed 10 people. We look forward to working with you all!
