Washington Trails Association trail crew leader Jane Baker already has organized several work parties for the Iller Creek and Liberty Lake trails this season.

The  effort to re-route portions of the Iller Creek trail is among seven volunteer trail work parties WTA is sponsoring June 4-5 in recognition of  National Trails Day.

No prior experience is necessary, just a desire to help out and have fun. Helpers must wear proper boots and clothing and bring water and food.  Tools are provided

Work parties begin at the trailhead around 8:30 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m.

Pre-registration is required, or call (206) 625-1367.
