This is our Level 1 Certification.
Trail Crew is targeted at:
- People completely new to trail building
- Anyone who needs to induct new trail builders at a work party
We also invite anyone who would like to run our Trail Crew training in their region to attend.
We introduce the tools of the trade, how to use them safely and the tasks they are best suited for. With tools in hand, we run through common tasks: clearing the corridor, pruning and removing trees, benching, building berms, armouring, drainage and planting.
Course length is a 2.5-3 hours and will take part out on the trails so please bring sturdy footwear, suitable layers of clothing and hard wearing gloves if you have them.
The course is part theory and discussion, part trail building and concludes with a test.
Course Location : Nelson
We are running this course as part of our Trail Fund Conference Dig Day. The Trail Crew course will be run in the same location as the dig day and we will join the other diggers at the finish of the course for a BBQ.
The course fee covers the cost of the Trail Crew limited edition t-shirt. This t-shirt can only be gained by completing one of our courses. Choose your colour and size at check out .
