Looking for an excuse to spend the morning in the mountains? Volunteer to help plant trees in Alta with Tree Utah!
Trees are vital not only to the beauty of the mountains, but to the health of our watersheds and the operation of resorts like Alta Ski Area.
Tree Utah invites you to discover a whole new side of Alta Ski Area by joining them to plant 2,000 trees on September 6th, 2014! Both rugged and rewarding; it will be a fun day to enjoy and give back to the beautiful Little Cottonwood Canyon.
A light breakfast will be provided including donations of coffee and tea from Starbucks and bagels from Einstein Bagel. The Albion Grill will be offering 25% off food for volunteers to enjoy lunch after planting.
100 volunteers are needed, ages 14+, and online registration is required because as they need to know the hiking abilities of the volunteers. Some groups will ride lifts and some will hike to plant, but all will be in rocky mountain terrain.
