April 2021  - Lodi Valley Chapter - Ice Age Trail

We're slowly opening up events to the public for 2021. April 10th was our first publicly communicated work day to maintain the trail. COVID  and safety protocols are in place for all events.

Our first major 2021 event is the Mammoth Fun Walk/Run on Saturday, June 5. We contacted the City of Lodi to use Doctor's Park. We have not finalized plans. We are waiting to see how the Lodi Optimist/Activate Lodi Run on May 16 works as they have virtual and in-person options.

As an Ice Age Trail Community, we've continued to support local organizations such as Lodi Optimist Club and school district youth programs through funding and the Chamber of Commerce through membership.
