Evergreen's Central Washington Chapter Receives Forest Service Award

Evergreen Central Washington is one of two trail groups being recognized "for going above and beyond their prescribed duties" by the US Forest Service Region 6, which encompasses Washington, Oregon, and Idaho!   

Headed up by  Mat Lyons and James Munly, Evergreen's Central Washington Chapter boasts a local volunteer force of 170 (and growing!) and completed more than 2500 hours of trail work just this year!

Considering some of the difficulties once facing mountain biking in this area, this is a huge accomplishment for Evergreen Central and its volunteers.  Currently the chapter is busy working on several trails in the Leavenworth and surrounding areas.

"There's lot of cool trail stuff happening," says James Munly, on a rare break from trailwork "this is our big month to make it happen before the snow and rain come." 

Volunteers are currently working on Freund Canyon, where they'll be turning roadbed back to trail, and on Rosy Boa where they're adding flow and repairing some skids. Congrats to all the hardworking members and volunteers of Evergreen Central! 

If you'd like to come out and help, keep your eye on the calendar for upcoming work parties!
