Join the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council, REI, Chipotle Mexican Grill, and our park agency partners for the 5th (!) annual REI - Ridge Trail Service Day to volunteer on the Ridge Trail near you! In 2012, we'll have a record-setting 15 projects!

The Service Day is our largest annual event, and a clear display of the Ridge Trail's regional nature. Each Bay Area REI joins with local land managers to host volunteer work parties on a nearby section of the Trail. Over the past four years, a total of 1,700 volunteers donated more than 7,300 hours while working on 48 projects, building & improving miles of Trail, and restoring adjacent open space and habitat. Chipotle is again generously donating their tasty burritos for lunch (where restaurants are available). With sites from San Jose to Santa Rosa, there is sure to be one close to home. Join us to improve the Ridge Trail at the Council's biggest annual event!!

When: Saturday, November 3, 2012
Project locations around the Bay! (see below for specific locations).
Advance Registration required: Opens Mon Sept 10. Sign up early, as sites fill up fast
