MOAB, UTAH (September 30, 2008) – Nearly 20 local volunteers helped improve the popular Kane Creek trailhead in Moab, Utah on Saturday’s National Public Lands Day.The project was part of a Tread Lightly! program called HUMMER’s Recreation Rescue. With funding from HUMMER and help from local volunteers, Tread Lightly! is providing project grants to recreation projects around the country to ensure land remains accessible for responsible recreationists. The Kane Creek trailhead and staging area serves several trails and is popular with mountain bikers, ATV riders, motorcyclists and four wheel drive enthusiasts. Because of its popularity, the area has become somewhat unorganized, often congested, and is seeing damage from unregulated use. Volunteers began constructing a new kiosk that will contain information on safety, responsible use, Bureau of Land Management rules, and hold new maps and brochures. New fence posts were installed and existing fencing was repaired to help prevent damage and better organize the trails. Volunteers also picked up litter around the area. Moab Friends for Wheelin’, who helped organize the work day, will continue to work on the trailhead’s projects through October. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact Tread Lightly! at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-966-9900. For more information on HUMMER’s Recreation Rescue, please visit www.treadlightly.org.
