IMBA Tail Care Crew Coming to CAMBA Country

The Subaru/IMBA Trail Care Crew will be paying a visit to the Chequamegon Area August on 5-7.

The Trail Care Crew is a professional trail consulting team hired by IMBA and sponsored by Subaru. They travel across the country and even work in foreign countries assisting and teaching trail clubs, land managers and advocates how to design and construct trails according to IMBA’s sustainable trail standards.

The crew will spend a couple of days assessing some of the CAMBA trails and on Saturday and Sunday conducting classroom and fieldwork sessions where local trail advocates can learn and employ sustainable trail construction strategies and techniques.

The TCC has visited the Chequamegon area in the past and CAMBA has learned a great deal from them about sustainable trail design and construction. The classroom and fieldwork sessions are highly recommended for anyone wanting to participate in local trail development.

Saturday morning’s session will be held at the Rivers Eatery in Cable beginning at 8:30 a.m. The field sessions will take place at a near by trail construction site.

There is no cost for the classes, but if you are interested in attending please register in advance by emailing or calling 715/798-3599. CAMBA will sponsor coffee and rolls, and beverages at lunch. Lunch will be available to purchase.

The classroom and field sessions are open to any agency or organization interested in sustainable trail design and construction. Affiliation with CAMBA is not required.
