The 5th Annual Pete Sorini Adopt Trail trail-work day will be held Saturday, June 20.

Volunteers are asked to meet at Thompson Park/Eagles Nest for the day that will go from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Take a right at the first gate just a few miles past Highway 2 junction.)

The day, organized by Gina Evans, a friend of the late Dr. Sorini, is billed as one of the best ways to honor a great man who loved the outdoors and giving back to Butte. The section from Highlands to Lime Kiln on the Continental Divide Trail was Sorini’s favorite view while view while mountain biking and hiking.

The event is sponsored by Father Patrick Beretta, Steve Martini and Bert Jones.

Volunteers are asked to stay and work for as long as they can. They are also encourage to wear long pants and bring their own gloves, water and nutrition. Sharing of water bottles will not be allowed, nor will wearing flip flops or open-toed shoes.

Bringing extra rakes or other tools would help, but people are asked not to share personal tools. Social distancing and safety rules will be followed to adhere to guidelines from the State of Montana and United States Forest Service.
