The Rocky Mountain Field Institute (RMFI) will begin its 2009 trail maintenance season in April and May.

Adult workdays that still have openings are April 11 (crew leader training), May 3, 10, 23 and 24.
Weekday dates in April and May may also be arranged for groups, according to Liz Nichol of RMFI.

A youth workday for middle and high school students is scheduled May 9 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Parents are also welcome.
