Trail Care Volunteers
Individuals and groups can help build and maintain trails under the direction of our Land Stewards. Simply sign up for one of our scheduled work days held at least once a month or contact us to coordinate a volunteer project for your group. No experience is required. Volunteers must be 15 or older and registration is required so can properly prepare. We provide all the tools and instructions you’ll need. We recommend bug spray, sunscreen, and water. Wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes and bring work gloves if you have some.

Trail Care Partners
Trail Care Partners are volunteers who adopt a Land Trust trail to assist with maintenance and monitoring. These partners can be individuals, companies, Scout troops, homeowner associations, etc. At the time of enrollment, the Land Trust will work with you or your group to select a trail, trailhead, or both based on your area of interest and our need. We ask our Trail Care Partners to monitor their designated area at least quarterly (especially after weather or wind events) and conduct light maintenance as needed.
Be a Citizen Scientist
You can use the iNaturalist app to identify and document flora and fauna as you observe it in nature. The app requires no plant or animal identification knowledge and works with any smart phone. By documenting what you find along your hike, you can help us inventory the incredibly varied species residing on our properties. Learn more about iNaturalist.
Clean up as you Hike
Of course all hikers should carry out what you carry in but you can go the extra mile by bringing along a garbage bag and plastic gloves to pick up trash as you hike. And if you see a problem on the trails, let us know so we can improve trail conditions!
All this trail work takes lots of tools and supplies and tools often have to be replaced or repaired. Take a look at our current trail care wishlist to see if there’s something you can provide. Learn about more ways you can support the Land Trust.
