IMBA Trail Care Crew to visit Anniston, Nov 11-14

Subaru/IMBA Trail Care CrewThe Trail Care Crew is IMBA's grassroots educational program and an authority on sustainable trail building practices. Since 1997 The Trail Care Crew program has inspired great volunteer trail work across the U.S. and abroad - a big help to government agencies and land managers who have limited funding for trail construction and upkeep. As a direct result, there are now thousands of new and improved trails in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico and several European countries.

Each crew visit is anchored around IMBA's highly-respected, one-day Trail Building School, during which the crews teach sustainable trail construction and maintenance practices via a classroom session and hands-on trail work.

Any local citizen, including state or Federal land managers with an interest in sustainable trail design and construction and/or an interest in the Coldwater Mountain mountain bike trail and other local trail projects should plan to attend this FREE seminar. The training is conducted by professionals from IMBA and hosted by NEABA-SORBA.
