BUILDING COMMUNITY THROUGH ACCESS TO ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION

What is WMBC-YTC (Youth Trail Corp)

YTC is all about: Middle and High school youth focusing on trail science and the art of building and maintaining a good trail, spending quality time outdoors, safe tool use and management, learning about trail building standards, forestry, teamwork, self reliance, service learning and a host of other topics that are integral to being a proficient trail builder. YTC youth can embrace trail building as an integral component to their mountain bike passion. 

 

YTC seeks to provide fun, achievable projects. We are involved in many different trail issues that the Trail Build Leaders and YTC youth come up with together. 

 

YTC Trail Day: Each day begins with meeting at our assigned location at 8:45, gathering as a group and departing at 9:00, riding your bikes up to base camp for the day, dropping off lunch and any extra stuff and working on the project designated for the day. We will return to established base for lunch and apply finishing touches if needed on the day’s trail project.. What is left of the day will be hitting the trails for some riding and trail discussion with your amazing Trail Builders. 

Each participant will bring  bike, lunch and snacks for day, mask, water, helmet, appropriate layers for seasonable weather and a snack. Kids will experience being outside all day working with youth crews and Trail Crew Leaders and learning some educational components of Trail Building. Groups stop for lunch and a few breaks during the day. We will wrap up the trail building portion of the day, jump on our bikes and ride together finishing up at the Samish Parking Lot at 4:00 to meet parents for pick up.

YTC works with new and seasoned YTC kids. We ask that your youth is comfortable riding most of the trails on Galbraith.
