Description

The Greenway Trust has offered the Women in the Woods series since 2010 to address the gender gap in the trail community and build community for women-identified and non-binary outdoor enthusiasts. Whether you are a trail pro or are out to try trail work for the first time, Women in the Woods events are a blast. 

This event will mark the final Women in the Woods event of 2018. With no experience necessary, please join a rad group of women for this momentous event. Together, we aim to complete a trail project Douglas Fir Trail, a well loved trail in the Mount Si trail system, connecting Little Si to Mount Teneriffe. The project work will include trail decommissioning using hugelkultur, rock work, and improving water runnoff from the trail's tread. As always, thank for volunteering with us!

We will be capturing some of this awesome project work in a video during the event! If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Caroline Villanova at caroline.villanova@mtsgreenway.org. Thank you!
 
Trail needs and accessibility vary during the winter season. Please be aware of potential site change, and expect to hear from us before the event. Thank you for your understanding!
