    Webinar Outline


    If you are a veteran trail maintainer this second webinar, "Natural Surface Trail Tread Maintenance ~ Part 2 of 3," will present some ideas on how you might pass along the skill to others. If you are just developing your skill set, you will get information to consider so you can make good decisions on the trail to maximize your effectiveness, it is appropriate for both agency personnel and volunteers.

    This workshop will introduce the concept of managing the surface flow of water on a trail tread. Participants will review and understand the application and purpose of a Grade Dip, Waterbar, Check Dam and Berm Removal in managing the surface flow of water on a trail tread. Students will better understand the dynamic impact of water on the trail tread surface and how these types of structures may impact the sustainability of the trail and the recreational experience.
