Volunteer Vacation - Lula Lake Land Trust (AdventurUs Women) Trail Maintenance

Join American Hiking Society for a week of building & maintaining trails in exciting locations across the country. Volunteer Vacations foster public land stewardship and provide volunteers the opportunity to give back to the trails they love, meet new people, and have a great time doing it! Crews consist of 6-15 volunteers accompanied by a crew leader. Volunteer Vacations involve backpacking or day hiking and accommodations vary from primitive campsites to bunkhouses or cabins. Tools and supervision are provided by the host agency or organization. Experience nature up close. Travel to new destinations. Meet other outdoor enthusiasts. Take a vacation that nourishes your body & your spirit. Get Out. Give Back.

Project Specifics: Join American Hiking Society, AdventurUs Women and Southeast Conservation Corps on this special Volunteer Vacation led by women, for women! We welcome volunteers of all gender identities and expressions who feel a women’s trip is the right space for them. Volunteers will work under the guidance of Southeast Conservation Corps staff to build a new section of trail on the Lula Lake Land Trust. This is an excellent project for first-time volunteers, who will receive full instructions and demonstrations for the safe use of all tools and trail building techniques.

Volunteers will work on a new network of multiuse trails at Lula Lake Land Trust that will eventually connect to nearby Cloudland Canyon State Park. The project will focus on building features in the trail using native rock in the surrounding area. Participants will learn a variety of rock related trail skills, including armoring, trail hardening, crush filling, moving, and shaping rock on a 15-foot section of the trail with opportunities to expand into other projects along the trail.

Established by the will of Robert M. Davenport in January of 1994, Lula Lake Land Trust is an 8,000 acre land trust dedicated to the protection and preservation of the land and its resources within the Rock Creek and Bear Creek watersheds. These lands serve as areas of research, education, conservation stewardship and recreation for both present and future generations. Through various partnerships and support from community members, Lula Lake Land Trust, has a variety of projects to protect and restore the natural resources and biodiversity of the area. Some of these projects include focused attention on Hemlock and American Chestnut tree health, monitoring of vulnerable animal and plant populations, maintenance of trails for recreational use, and serving as engaged educators through outings, events, and volunteer opportunities.

AHS acknowledges with gratitude that this project takes place on the traditional lands of the Eastern Band of Cherokee people past and present. We honor the land itself, the Indigenous communities who have stewarded this land for generations, and those who continue to steward these lands today. AHS invites all volunteers to join us in our commitment to support and amplify the work of Indigenous communities as they work to dismantle the systems of oppression that these communities continue to face today.

Accommodations: Volunteers will tent camp on the main preserve of the Lula Lake Land Trust property, nearby a beautiful stream with hiking trail access nearby. There will be a communal kitchen area for meals. Volunteers will have access to pit toilets throughout the week. Volunteers will be able to schedule one shower day during the week, but otherwise showers and running water will not be available each day. Volunteers need to supply their own tent and personal camping gear including sleeping bag, sleeping pad and personal cup/bowl/mug/eating utensils. Please contact volunteer@americanhiking.org for assistance with gear needs.

Trip Cost: $350 per person

Volunteer Experience: While trips do not require prior trail maintenance experience, all of our projects require participants to be in good physical condition and will involve 30-40 hours of physical labor during the week.
