National Trails Day - Longmire Campground Volunteer Event

Starting in 2009, Volunteer Program Manager Kevin Bacher (an avid geocacher) has hosted an annual "spring cleaning" of the Longmire Stewardship Campground, supported largely by members of the geocaching community and their friends. This year, we have a much larger project on the roster, so we are reaching out to all our volunteers, inviting them (YOU!) to join us in celebrating National Trails Day by helping with the construction of 15 old-style wooden picnic tables and erection of the platform tents.

We will meet at the campground hosts' residence at the back of the Community Building at the north end of the Longmire Campground at 9:30 AM on Saturday, June 7. To find the project location, turn at the Longmire Museum and drive across the historic wooden suspension bridge. The Community Building will be on your left, approximately two-tenths of a mile from the bridge. There is plenty of parking out front. 

Camping is available at Longmire at no charge for volunteers, and if we get the platform tents built, you'll even be able to rest off the cold ground! Tents and small RVs (ideally 24 feet max) are also welcome. There are no hookups, but we'll have access to hot showers in the bath house. Please RSVP to if you plan to camp, and let us know what kind of site you need. Entrance fees will be waived for volunteers participating on this project.
