Gallatin Valley Land Trust Hosts Two June Community Trail Events

National Trails Day: Every year, GVLT participates in a nationwide event called National Trails Day. On June 7th, Bozeman community members will volunteer their time to work on the Main Street to the Mountains Trail system.  This year’s volunteer work projects include new trail construction at Highland Glen Nature Preserve and family-friendly trail resurfacing around Lindley Park. Volunteers will meet at 9:00am at the Lindley Park Pavilion to get tools and trail assignments.

Projects will wrap up around 12:00 and lunch, donated by Baja Fresh, will be served at the pavilion at 12:30pm.  There is no registration necessary for this event and it is free and open to the public.  Volunteers are asked to bring sunscreen, layers for weather, sturdy shoes, hat, and gloves. GVLT will provide some tools, but if possible volunteers are asked to bring shovels, rakes, and wheelbarrows.

Many thanks to generous sponsors: Rocky Mountain Credit Union, 360 Pet Medical, Allegra Marketing, Amatics CPA, Baja Fresh, Crowley Fleck Attorneys, McKinstry, Stockman Bank and others.

Longest Day of Trails: Join GVLT supporters for a dawn-to-dusk biking celebration on June 20th.  The event kicks off at Montana Aleworks with guided bike rides throughout the day on various town loops from sunrise (6:00am) to sunset (9:00pm).  Rides vary in ability and length. Spin around the Main Street to the Mountains trails for a few miles, a single loop, or the entire day. $35 GVLT memberships are encouraged for participants.  Members receive gift certificates to a number of other local businesses at the event. From 4pm-10pm, riders and onlookers will enjoy music from Jawbone Railroad and outside dining at Aleworks.
