CCC Impact Report

Read all about the results of the COVID-19 Conservation Corps in this new report!

Put together by our amazing Alaska Fellow Kate, this report looks beautiful and shares valuable information on what we accomplished. We hope this report becomes a catalyst for a statewide trails workforce development program.

Stay tuned for how you can help advocate for that happening.

Crews Coming Soon

It's almost time for crews to be out on trail. Training for our 15 crew members is scheduled to begin May 17th. 

Our Trails Coordinator, Duncan, has been hard at work creating an amazing trails plan and calendar for this summer. 

Check out Facebook or Instagram for weekly sneak peaks of our 2021 work plan.

Volunteer With Us

We can't wait to have volunteers back in the field with us this season. Volunteers are crucial to our success at Trail Mix and often help with re-vegetation, raking, graveling, and re-treading trails. All ability levels are welcome.

Due to COVID-19, we will not be hosting open call volunteer days, but we invite you to coordinate a group of your friends, colleagues, etc. for a day of trail work or even a multi-day project. Click here for more info and to sign up your group.

 

Hi friend,

Holy ravioli, I hope you are enjoying this sunshine as much as I am. As the snow creeps away I grow more and more excited to start spending a little less time at my desk and a little more time on the trails. It also has me reflecting on the work we’ve put into our trail system over the winter- planning for the future of Juneau’s trails, meeting our community fundraising goal for the Treadwell Ditch, and taking an important retrospective look at the broad-ranging impacts of the 2020 COVID Conservation Corps. After an especially long winter, I’m appreciative of our team for putting in the hours over the winter and especially thankful to our members like you who keep us going!

It won’t be too long until you start seeing our crews out working on the trails again. We’ve started introducing some of the trails on our work plan such as Pt. Bridget, Treadwell Ditch, and Lena Point. We’ll also be introducing some of our crew members over the next few weeks, so stay tuned to our social media for more updates. 

 

Happy Earth Day!

Lena Point on a sunny day is such a beautiful spot. At two miles round trip, this out-and-back trail is the perfect place to stretch your legs at the end of the day. Some areas are a little muddy right now; but, we'll have crews fixing those spots up in no time!

 

Outer Point Loop

If you enjoy scenic loop trails, Outer Point is the perfect spot. Enjoy the quiet of the rainforest and the beauty of the beach. The beach at Outer Point is also amazing for tidepooling on low tide days.

For those wanting a longer adventure, Herbert Glacier trail is a 10 mile out-and-back trail. As the snow is starting to melt, keep this trial in mind for trail running, biking, and hiking. The sandy riverbed near the end of the trail is a great spot to view the glacier and have a picnic. 

 

  • As you hike this season, remember that you can report any trail damage on the Juneau Trails Damage Report. Pictures of the reported damage are incredibly helpful so that our crews are able to understand the issue needing to be fixed. Report responses are reviewed frequently and the issues will be handled by either Trail Mix, Forest Service, or Alaska State Parks. 
  • With spring here, please be bear aware on your hikes! This article gives some helpful tips on hiking safely in bear territory. 
 

Community Clean Up

This month we're sharing a local event with you! Litter Free Inc. is hosting a community clean up May 1st. If you love seeing our city and trails sparkle, we encourage you to participate in this clean-up.
