Colorado Addicted Trailbuilders Society
Colorado Addicted Trailbuilders Society (CATS) [now a 501(c)3 non-profit service organization] was formed in 2007 in Colorado Springs, CO by several individuals looking for more than a trail building weekend provides. They saw a need to continue the trail repairs and maintenance more than once a month. Evenings became the optimum time to work in parks/open spaces and such without much fanfare and drama. This extra workforce provides quality work at no cost to the tax payer - you! It saves the cities and parks the cost of hiring paid trail folks. Budget cut backs and loss of park personnel have warranted more volunteer organizations like CATS to organize and get out there.
CATS is well trained and extremely capable of providing quality trail work in all levels of disciplines. New folks are trained every time they come out. There is something new to learn with every adventure. CATS always receives permission to perform work and complies with all necessary paperwork. We pride ourselves on quality - not quantity work and have a excellent safety track record.
NOCO CATS is now open to all individuals - no discriminations, but an age limit of 18 years, unless accompanied by their parent(s).
NO DUES and such at the present. Some minor paperwork and then just show up for an evening or event full of fun and learning.
We also celebrate after each trail event at a local establishment in the Fort Collins/Loveland area for a late night bite and drink. This is the social aspect of the group. We have other perks as well.
We have been busy the last four years now in Ft Collins and especially the Loveland area. We are designing trail systems and instructing future crew leaders. Our quality work speaks for itself as our 'customers' repetitively return to use the trails we repair or build. Work is good and it keeps us focused on making things better and lasting. You have to come experience the outdoor rush.
So, if you are interested in this group and need more details - please e-mail the host on this Sign Up Genius, or send an email directly to Bob Johnson: firstname.lastname@example.org or checkout our new website: www.trailcats.org or our Facebook page: www.facebook.com/trailcats.org
