Support the volunteers who maintain these trails: Star Valley Ranch Trail Crew!

The Star Valley Ranch Trail Crew is an all Volunteer organization dedicated to improving recreational trails on the Bridger-Teton National Forest and within our community. Our organization started work in 2015 and continues to grow and expand as we start our 10th year of operations. We currently have 87 volunteers who donate 1500 hours annually to build and maintain 12.5 miles of trail and 7 trailheads. Our crews work tirelessly to remove downed trees, add water bars for erosion control, brush, and limb to widen trail access, and improve trail/trailhead signage. In addition, we partner with AllTrails to help verify and improve the information provided on the App for the trails we maintain. Enjoy your hike!

@bridgertetonfriends Guess who has a new chainsaw?? The Pinedale District does! Donated by AllTrails, which is a member of 1% For the Planet, Pinedale crews will use it to help maintain the district's backcountry trails (that are not in designated Wilderness, where chainsaws are not allowed). @alltrails @1percentftp #bridgertetonnationalforest #bridgertetonfriends #publiclands #backcountrytrails #wyominghiking #nationalforest #nationalforests @stihlusa @stihl #chainsaws If you haven't yet wandered by the Jackson District offices of the BTNF, you should—and keep an eye out for the new pollinator garden, which volunteers and BTNF staff planted during last month's National Pollinator Week. Julie Cleveland, wildlife technician and communications specialist for Bridger-Teton says pollinators in the area are struggling. “This is a good way to raise awareness and then also provide a little bit of a habitat for them,” she says. The new plants include yarrow, ponderosa pine, Oregon grape, dogwood and willow saplings. These will attract bees, and also moths, bats, hummingbirds, flies, butterflies and certain types of flying beetles. The Greys River district office has also gotten a pollinator garden, and we'll post photos of it as soon as we have some! #bridgertetonnationalforest #btnf #bridgertetonfriends #btnfvolunteers #btnfjacksondistrict #nationalpollinatorweek #pollinators #publiclands #nationalforest #nationalforests Is it a donation if you get something awesome for it?
