Volunteer love!

How do Howard and Connie Shay love the Scotchman Peaks? Let them count the ways: Trail crew workers, mountain goat ambassadors, outreach specialists, Winter Tracks volunteers . . . The Shays show their love year around.

“We love volunteering in the Scotchmans,” say the Shays. “It’s an incredible opportunity. We help with the FSPW Winter Tracks program, hike the awesome Scotchman Peak trail as goat ambassadors and work to keep Scotchman trails free to roam. It’s important to save this incredibly wild place for future generations, so my children and grandchildren can enjoy this rugged area as we do.”

Thank you, Connie and Howard, for all you do!

Spread the love
