Join us for Pints and Pulaskis as we welcome Salem’s new trail work group, the Salamanders. The Salamanders will be bringing the tools of their trade into the shop to teach us about the need for trail maintenance in our area and the great work they are doing to address that need. Salem Ale Works is generously providing some of their finest beer, free for you to enjoy as you browse the shop and learn about how you can help make trails in the Salem area better for everyone! Members of Salem Area Trail Alliance will also be on hand to chat about ongoing trail building projects and opportunities to get involved this fall and winter. Additionally, the first 20 participants will receive a free Osprey stainless steel pint glasses and koozie. Unlike, some of our past events, this will not be a sit down lecture but rather a chance to hang out, have a beer and learn something new.
The Salamanders are a new division of the High Cascades Forest Volunteers, a group dedicated to helping “maintain, restore and preserve public lands and resources administered by the National Forest Service for present and future generations”. The High Cascades Forest Volunteers has a very active group out of Eugene that does great work maintaining the trails in the southern Willamette Valley but until now no such group has existed for our area. The Salamanders area of focus will be the Highway 22 corridor and the many trails contained within its boundaries.
