Work Party Schedule

All Work Parties now require Pre-Registration due to COVID-19

We now have two regular opportunities for working in the Forest every month. Our work parties are true low-barrier events. We provide all the tools you'll need. All you have to do is show up (after pre-registering) with a pair of sturdy shoes, some clothes you don't mind staining "Capitol Forest Brown," and a good attitude. No prior experience necessary. 


In this era of Covid 19, we have worked closely with DNR to develop a work party protocol that will provide a high level of safety for our work party participants. The new rules will help to ensure workers' safety by limiting the size of work parties to 11 people (1 lead and 10 volunteers), requiring volunteers to carry hand sanitizer, face mask, disposable gloves and eye protection, restricting carpooling unless your group is family, prohibiting the sharing of tools, fully sanitizing the tools at the end of the work party, and not allowing post-work party gatherings in order to comply with the Governor's Stay Home Stay Healthy order.  All work parties will require pre-registration so that we can cap the number of participants for everyone's safety. Please keep an eye on our Facebook Events site, Instagram, Strava, and email for future work party announcements and registration procedures. Please be safe and thank you for your continued support. 

"First Saturday" Work Party

Every first Saturday of the month at 9:00 AM, the work party will convene at the Fall Creek Shelter. For a map and directions, please click here. If there are more than 10 interested participants, we will divide up into teams and you will be contacted by the trail lead on where to meet prior to the event. These work parties focus on trail maintenance; from drainage work to re-routing sections of trails to building bridges over creeks. They may also involve building new trails! These work parties keep the trails riding year round. To register, click HERE. 

DH Trails Work Party

Every third Saturday of the month we meet at 9:00 AM at the entrance to the Straddline ORV Park. We're building advanced trail riding opportunities on the north end of the forest, including an honest-to-goodness DH line. We could not be more excited about these trails, and we think you're gonna be pretty stoked too. These work parties focus on trail construction and tuning these trails up to get them ready for prime time. To register, click HERE.
