From VOC website:
What You’ll Do:

Spend a Saturday in Colorado Springs to reroute a significant access trail to Stratton Open Space. After a light breakfast provided by our volunteer Crew Chefs, you’ll join approximately 60-75 other volunteers ages 14+ in closing the old route and replacing it with a new, more sustainable trail. Those who enjoy more technical tasks will have the opportunity to install sign posts, construct fencing, and build erosion control structures such as check dams.

Why It Matters:
Stratton Open Space is a local favorite and the trail you help build will serve as an integral access point for residents looking to enjoy Stratton Open Space as well as its trail connections to North Cheyenne Canon, the Pike National Forest, Bear Creek Regional Park, and the Pikes Peak Greenway. By building a more sustainable route, your efforts will help protect the beauty and natural resources of this area for years to come.”
