Workday Schedule!

Here’s the AMBC trail work day schedule for Fall/Winter 2012/2013. Knoxville’s trails don’t happen without our local volunteers, and will only grow bigger and better with your help. All workdays start at 9 and end between noon-3pm, depending on number of volunteers and work to be completed.

Workday sponsorships are available. If you or your business is interested in sponsoring lunch for an AMBC workday, please contact Brian Hann at president@ambc-sorba.org. Thanks for your support!
