Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado is looking for 75 people to participate in a trail-building project in the Spanish Peaks Wilderness Area over the July Fourth weekend. The Spanish Peaks are located between Walsenberg and Trinidad near Cuchara. The trail construction is needed to preserve the area from private development. To sign up, contact Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado at 303/715-1010 Ext. 10 or surf on over to www.voc.org.

Meet at the BJR Open Space near the Goldfield Road parking area at 6 a.m. RSVP is required, and a $2 donation for the adults is suggested. Call 719/683-7955 to sign up.
