Lightly on the Land
The SCA Trail Building and Maintenance Manual
The trail building and maintenance "bible," updated and expanded to meet new techniques and new realities of the 21st century.
From the back cover:
This invaluable guide is based upon the award-winning "Work Skills Program" of the Student Conservation Association, which has more than 40 years' experience providing skilled volunteers to the Forest Service, Park Service, and Bureau of Land Management. Lightly on the Land covers all aspects of trail building and maintenance, including crew leadership, safety, wilderness restoration, revegitation, survey, and design.
Whether you're a natural resource land manager, a volunteer trail builder, an outdoor trail user, or a member of an outdoor school or organization involved in trail building, you'll refer to this handbook again and again!
