      The course  will be lead by Kelly Pearson, Shawnee National Forest Wilderness and Volunteer Coordinator.   Kelly coordinates the award-winning trails program for the Shawnee National Forest and brings years of trail building experience to the workshop to help teach landowners about how correct design and installation can help maximize the longevity and usefulness of trails while minimizing future maintenance needs.

      This workshop will utilize both classroom presentations and hands-on training.  Attendees will have the opportunity to practice trail design and installation through helping to install a new trail at the Ag Center.

     There is a $10 fee for this workshop, lunch is included.
