Trail Care

You can help build and maintain Land Trust trails.

Upcoming volunteer opportunities are listed at the bottom of this page or on our events calendar. Contact Amanda Weisenberger at 256-534-5263 or for more information about volunteer opportunities.

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.

Check out our calendar of events for upcoming volunteer opportunities and sign up!

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.

Become a Trail Care Partner

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!

Donate Supplies

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.
