Trail Workdays

PPLT Trail Workdays are a Family AffairJoin Prickly Pear Land Trust staff and volunteers in giving back to the trails that are such a big part of living in Helena. Meet at the designated area at 5:30 p.m. where we will have a short discussion of the project for the day and divide into smaller work groups. These events are fun for the entire family and we always have a variety of tasks to match everyone’s ability and interest. Prickly Pear Land Trust will provide the tools and instruction on trail work. We also have gloves, if you need them. You need to bring:

  • enthusiasm for the trails
  • wind/rain gear
  • eye protection
  • work gloves
  • sun protection: hat, sunscreen
  • sturdy shoes
  • good weather

We typically work rain or shine. However, we will not work if there are storms in the area that contain high winds or lightning. In the event of unfavorable weather, we will make the determination to reschedule the event by 4 p.m. on the afternoon of the workday and post the cancellation notice on our website and Facebook page.

2017 Trail Workday Schedule

The dates are set for the 2017 Trail Workday season. We will update the website with meeting places and projects as more details become available.

July 17:  Meet at Beattie Street Trailhead at 5:30 p.m. for some summer fun working on the new Mt. Ascension trail off of 2006. We will continue to build and perfect the new trail so we can hopefully open it up later this summer! As a cool bonus, participants of legal age will receive a FREE beer from our friends over at Ten Mile Creek Brewery! As always, we will have water, gloves and tools … all you need to bring is yourself. See you there!!
