    Name: Ice Age Trail Mobile Skills Crew Project
    Date: September 18, 2019 - September 22, 2019
    Event Description:
    Ice Age Trail-Mobile Skills Crew Project on Bohn Lake. Waushara County is home to 20 miles of beautiful off-road hiking on the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. One beloved segment of the Trail travels through and around Bohn Lake State National Area. Bohn Lake is one piece of a 14-mile long glacial tunnel channel, created by a meltwater river flowing beneath glacial ice whose outlet was where the Village of Hancock stands today. The Ice Age Trail weaves in and out of this tunnel channel, opening for interpretation the subglacial flow of water which carved the landscape. September 18th-22nd volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a trail building event on the Bohn Lake segment of the Ice Age Trail. During the event, which is part of the IATA’s Mobile Skills Crew program, volunteers will help build an elevated boardwalk, stone steps and retaining walls, and close to a mile of sustainable footpath. Help is also needed cooking meals, removing invasive plants, updating and installing trail signage, and addressing existing trail maintenance needs. No previous experience is necessary, and there will be roles for all ages and abilities. Volunteers will gather Wednesday through Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. at Hancock Park, which serves as project basecamp. Trail work ends around 4 p.m. each day and at noon on Sunday. The IATA provides meals, tools, and a place to camp for free to all who volunteer. There is no obligation to stay for the entire event, but many do because of the fun atmosphere and camaraderie that develop throughout the project.
