WyCo Trails Xtreme Makeover


This is an American Hiking Society - National Trails DayŽ event


Organized by the Trail Nerds Association in conjunction with Wyandotte County Parks & Recreation Department


June 6, 2009  from 8:00am to 3:00pm

Wyandotte County Lake Park

Shelter 11 (east side of dam)

Participants registered by May 15th will receive a commemorative t-shirt

Lunch will be provided

If you’ve never been on the trail at Wyandotte County Lake Park, this is a perfect opportunity to see what WyCo has to offer.  Put your volunteering skills to practical use and get a workout while you’re at it!  We will be performing trail maintenance and building new sections of trail as part of the American Hiking Society’s National Trails DayŽ.  There will be varying levels of work from moderate to mildly strenuous.  Activities may include moving brush, rocks, shoveling dirt, hoeing and leveling, etc.  All ages are welcome and there should be something for everyone. 


All tools will be provided. No power tools will be needed.  All participants are encouraged to dress appropriately, wearing long pants, leather boots, eye protection, hats, gloves etc.  We will be working in undeveloped forested areas so bug repellant is encouraged.   It is possible to be exposed to ticks and poison ivy.  All participants will be required to sign a participation release of liability waiver.


We are asking everyone who is planning to attend the June 6th event to go to this link Click here to register for the event to officially register. Please register even if you have told one of us you are coming. This will help us track the numbers for lunch and commemorative t-shirts.


Please contact Sam Kevern at 816-898-5096 or  or Jim Megerson at 913-226-7077 or if you are interested or would like additional information.

Yes, the Trail Nerds are a GeNerdous bunch!
The Trail Nerds give back more than labor to the trails.  We also give our $$$.  So far in 2009, we have given $1500 to trail advocacy groups.  One thousand dollars of funding alone went back into the North Shore Trails in Lawrence (through an ear-marked donation to the Kansas Trails Council), up from $528 that we gave the year prior, and $383 that we gave in 2007.  Many of the improvements that you see out there were funded by the Trail Nerds Association.  In addition, we have given $500 to ERTA (so far in 2009), toward their trail maintenance and trail building concerns.  View the letters.
