***  Trail/Outdoor/Conservation volunteer opportunities:

 

1.)  VOLUNTEER ALPINE STEWARDS,  Franconia Ridge and on Mt. Washington summit cone trails, Appalachian Mountain Club, Boston, Mass.

 

Volunteer Alpine Stewards provide outreach education to help protect the fragile alpine ecosystem above tree line in the White Mountains. As they hike along the Franconia Ridge and on Mt. Washington summit cone trails, Stewards engage with hikers about Leave No Trace principles, alpine ecology, trail conditions, and backcountry safety. Stewards monitor alpine plants at designated research plots, collecting data for AMC’s Mountain Watch, and perform light trail maintenance. The Volunteer Alpine Steward Program is a partnership between the Appalachian Mountain Club, the White Mountain National Forest, and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.

 

Essential qualifications include prior experience hiking White Mountain trails, especially above treeline; an outgoing, friendly personality; and knowledge about outdoor gear and backcountry safety.

More musings from the Far North…

 

I watched ski-equipped airplanes land on ice runways on the lake.  In the summer they switch to floats.

 

There has been major mining operations in this part of Northwest Territories, inmcluding gold and diamonds.  Some have been abandoned by their bankrupt coprorate masters, left for the government to clean up the highly toxic waste.

 

Th effects of Global Warming are real here.  The visitors center, built in 1991, was condemned in 2017 because it is sinking into the permafrost below that has thawed and become unstable.  And I arrived in Yellowknife for the Snowking’s Winter Festival, and actually met the Snow King himself, standing outside his snow castle, a huge ice structure built each year for the event.  We couldn’t go in, however, because it was melting at a rapid rate, and closed for the first time in the 24-year history of the festival.

 

“This shows the difference a couple of degrees can have,” said the festival’s LaurFrost Busch.

***  Grouse Mountain

 

Wonderful dinner with my fellow IABC Fellows on June 10 at the lodge atop Grouse Mountain overlooking Vancouver, British Columbia.  What a beautiful way to watch the sun set as the lights of the harbor and environs come on.

***  What to do with some time to kill in Seattle?  How about watching the traffic come and go at the Ballard Locks, officially knowns as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Hiram M. Chittenden Locks at the Lake Washington Ship Canal.  It was completed in 1917, connecting the waters of Lake Washington, Lake Union, and Salmon Bay to the tidal waters of Puget Sound.

But we don’t call this cold in Quebec.’”

***  Yellowknife

 

Yellowknife is the capital and largest community the the vast area known as Canada’s Northwest Territories (NT or NWT).

 

About 40,000 people live in NWT, an area of nearly a half million square miles (NWT used to be much bigger until Canada created a sepearte territory called Nunuvut (Altogether, Canada’s three territories of Ykon, NWT and Nunuvut have about 113,000 people—so thats a lot of land for not a lot of people).  About half of them live in Yellowknike, a city with streetlights, hotels, parking metrers and parking garages, multi-story buildings and a Wal-Mart.  No other city in NWT has all those things.  In fact, there are n other cities in NWT.  NWT has several official languages, including English, French, Chipewyan, Cree, Gwich’in, Inuinnaqtun, Inuktitut, Inuvialuktun, North Slavey, South Slavey and Tłı̨chǫ.  NWT goes from “way up there” to “way, way, way up there,” far above the Arctic Circle.  It is cold here in winter (it can get down to -60 F/-50 C), as you would expect, but it gets hotter in the summer than you would think (the record high is 90 F / 32 C).  Mining led to development in this part of Canada, and is still an important economic engine, with gold on the wane and a rise in diamond mining.  The Canadian Forces Joint Task Force North is located here, and they are my hosts for Operation Nanook-Nunalivut 2019, taking us to Resolute (which is in Nunvut), Inuvik and Tuktoyaktuk.

 

While Yellowknife has air connections to the outside world, there are also small airlines that serve the very remote communities and camps.  They use planes equipped with floats in the summer; skis in the winter; and wheels in between.   Today I saw one landing on the ice-covered lake.  There are ice roads up here that connect communities with shortcuts–like Yellowknife to Hay River, for example–in the winter.

***  National Park Service Resuming Operations

 

With the enactment of the continuing resolution, the National Park Service is preparing to resume regular operations though the schedule for individual parks may vary depending on staff size and complexity of operations. Many parks which have been accessible throughout the lapse in appropriations remain accessible with basic services. Visitors should contact individual parks or visit park websites for the latest information opening schedules and accessibility and visitor services. Some parks which have been closed throughout the lapse in appropriations may not reopen immediately. (NPS)

by Laura Stark

https://www.railstotrails.org/trailblog/2018/november/13/kansas-flint-hills-trail-state-park/?tag=Trail+of+the+Month

 

*** Trail/Outdoor/Conservation volunteer opportunities:

 

1.)  Wildlife Conservation Volunteer, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish, Albuquerque

http://www.wildlife.state.nm.us/home/contact/wildlife-conservation-volunteer/

 

2.)  Volunteer Ranger, Cedarville State Forest, Southern Maryland Recreational Complex (SMRC), Maryland Park Service, Department of natural Resources, Brandywine, MD

 

Volunteer Rangers help protect Maryland’s natural resources. The Volunteer Ranger program is for people ages 18 and above who want to assist the Department’s regular work force in state parks with operations, programs and public service. Volunteers are trained and provided with uniforms for their jobs once they have completed 40 hours of volunteer service at a state park.

 

A one-day orientation training helps rangers become acclimated to the state forest and Park Service. Additional training opportunities, that may include CPR, first aid, search and rescue and trail stewardship, are offered on a regional basis. As ambassadors of the state parks, Volunteer Rangers serve a vital role to the public. Thousands of visitors to Maryland’s state parks look to Volunteer Rangers for guidance and help. For an application and additional information, contact Ranger Nakia Johnson at 301-888-1410 or e-mail at nakia.johnson@marylan?d.gov.

By KATIE MCELVEEN

https://www.realsimple.com/work-life/travel/tips-air-travel-insiders

 

*** From Steve at NatureOutside.com:

 

Here’s an interactive map that you can use to learn the tribes that originally inhabited your area. The tool works for North America, South and Central America, Africa, Greenland, Australia and islands in the Pacific. You can search by address, language, territory, and treaties.

 

The map is far from complete, and the authors say as much. Also, I notice that my area uses the generic term, “Ohlone,” when in truth there were actually many politically independent tribal bands that inhabited the area before the Spanish arrived.
