We host the cabin at the Junco Lake Trailhead on weekends and holidays, and the cabin at Monarch Lake on Fridays and weekends. The Forest Service and other volunteers host the other days at Monarch.
Sign up begins at the spring meeting. After the spring meeting, check the availability and sign up by sending an email to the hosting coordinator Dick Sprague.
An orientation is provided at both the Monarch Trailhead Cabin and the Junco Trailhead Cabin. Orientations are for new members, those who have not hosted in the past, or any member who wants a refresher. Information about our group's history, wilderness areas in Grand County, and hosting on the trails and at our cabins is shared.
Those unable to attend orientation can arrange to cabin host with experienced members. This can be done independently or though the hosting coordinator.
Each member is expected to cabin host at least two times during the season. More often is welcomed to help us fill the schedule.
A volunteer handbook is located in each Cabin with complete instructions.
In general hosts are at the cabin from 9 to 4, but hours of hosting may vary on the time you have available.
If you cannot make your hosting day, you are responsible for finding a replacement. Please report the hosting change to the hosting coordinator.
Members should wear their volunteer tee shirts and your forest service volunteer badge (If you do not have an badge, there are usually some at the cabin.)
Time spent cabin hosting is recorded the sign up schedule. These hours are used
in grant applications and reports to the forest service.
