The Washington Trails Association (WTA) partners with volunteers year-round to help construct and maintain parks and trails statewide.
The WTA has ongoing work at Larrabee State Park, Fragrance Lake, the Samish Bay Connector trail on Oyster Dome and Sharpe Park near Deception Pass.
Work parties are scheduled for Feb. 21 and 22 in Bellingham, according to the WTA website.
Work is also being done in the Sehome Arboretum, said Arlen Bogaards, WTA Northwest regional manager.
“We are rehabilitating one of the trails that goes through the Arboretum,” Bogaards said.
“It’s an existing trail, but it was basically built by people walking around out there, so we’re trying to make it wider, safer and more sustainable.”
So far, one work party has done maintenance in the Arboretum this year. Out of the 21 volunteers, about 18 of them were Western students, Bogaards said….
