Meghan Morrissey Gives Back at National Public Lands Day

National Public Lands Day took place on September 24, 2011.  National Public Lands Day is the nation’s largest, single-day volunteer event for public lands in the United States.

Meghan worked on the Blizzard Pass Trail near Grand Lake, Colorado,  which is part of the Arapaho-Roosevelt National Forest.   Meghan, along with 20 other volunteers, built approximately 170 feet of “turnpike.”   Turnpikes are used to elevate the trail above wet ground.  The technique uses fill material to build up the trail base higher than the surrounding water table.
