Trail Crew Volunteer
Join us in the field to swing a tool, move dirt or build a new structure. CDT Montana projects range from moderate to very strenuous; one day to 10 days; car camping campsites to backcountry living primitive settings. There is something for everyone.
Give us a call if we can offer more details. We can help you make a decision that is right for you and other volunteers you'll be working with. It's important to pull your weight, but learning and new experiences is what CDT Montana volunteer projects are all about, too!
Want to join a field project, but not interested in all the heavy lifting. Then volunteer as a Camp Cook.
We need Camp Cooks for car camping and backcountry projects. CDT Montana provides the budget, menu suggestions, kitchen gear and hungry volunteers. You help with the food shopping, menu planning and on-site chef skills. Two cooks are often better than one so bring a friend! Call us if you're interested in this position at 406.499.2309; we'll give you all the details. And you get a nifty little Camp Cook apron as a souvenier.
We are used to working with horse and mule strings, but we're not opposed to llamas, goats or big dogs that can pack our gear into the backcountry. Nearly half of our trail projects are in the backcountry; 4 miles to 18 miles in distance so we are very grateful for our packing friends. In particular, the Back Country Horsemen of Montana (various clubs) have stepped up to help us with pack support over the years. If you're interested in packing - we'd love to chat with you! We schedule most of our packing trips in February-March before summer projects. All packers must have (current) USFS Defensive Horsemenship Training.
