Arizona Trail Adirondack Chair Raffle
Buy your raffle tickets today for an opportunity to win a hand-painted Adirondack
chair that celebrates the beauty and biodiversity of the Arizona National Scenic
Trail. The chair was designed and painted by Jody Rypkema, a Pioneer Title Agency
Coconino County Title Office employee. Jody has been a decorative painter for
several years and has painted several Adirondack chairs, always donating them
to non-profit organizations for fund raising events. The chairs have been some
of the highest value auction items at many events in Flagstaff.
As part of the Pioneer Title Agency "Take A Hike" 30th
anniversary celebration Jody adopted Passage 32 and did her part by hiking
the passage earlier this year. She was asked to also assist in raising funds
for the ATA by painting a chair that captures the essence of the Arizona
National Scenic Trail. Don't miss this opportunity to win this one-of-a-kind
chair that will look ideal on your deck or in your home. The drawing will be
held after the Arizona Trail Day event in Flagstaff on September 12. You could
be the lucky winner!

Volunteer Work Training Sessions
Learn the art and science of trail maintenance and construction through our NEW Volunteer Work
Training Sessions, offered at four locations throughout Arizona in 2015. Are you interested
in learning more about properly monitoring, maintaining and constructing trails? Are you a
steward of the Arizona Trail or are you interested in helping out with trail projects? Do
you like to get your hands dirty while learning valuable skills at the same time? If you
answered "yes" to any of these questions, then make your reservations today for the upcoming
Dates for the ATA Volunteer Work Trainings include:
This collaboration between the Arizona Trail Association (ATA) and American Conservation
Experience (ACE) will teach valuable skills to volunteers, including those who have been
involved in trail projects for many years. Drawing upon thousands of hours on the trail and
in the classroom, including some of the most daunting trail projects you can imagine, ACE
staff will inspire, educate, and give you the skills you need to be an effective steward and
trail volunteer. From learning more about arid lands hydrology and how it relates to trail
sustainability, to building rock check dams and realigning portions of poorly built trail,
these sessions include time-tested techniques and innovative principles.
Registration for the two-day trainings is only $125 per person and includes professional
instruction, a Trail Assessment Handbook, four meals and lots of fun! Space is limited so
please register today. Professional educators and trail builders from American Conservation
Experience are donating their time and talent to help train you to become
better stewards of the land; all funds generated from these courses will cover basic program
costs and any remaining funds will go back to the trail. Scholarships are available for youth,
veterans and others (contact
for more information on scholarships).
Each two-day training will take place entirely outdoors, with a focus on experiential
learning, designed to benefit seasoned trail dogs and first-timers alike. For more information,
please visit our Volunteer Trainings page.
