Looking for volunteer projects for your group, friends, co-workers, or your self?

Give us a call–there’s more work to be done, and we’d love to work with you!

Some ideas for creative volunteering:

  • Adopt a trail: Pledge to come out on a monthly or quarterly (or whatever suits you) basis to walk the full trail system and make sure that it’s clean, safe, and in good repair for other visitors. We’ll train you in on our procedures and may have some supplies for you!
  • Call us up for a special work day: You have a youth group, a staff bonding day, etc? You betcha we have a project for you all. Like I said, all kinds of work to be done out there, and we can get more of it done in less time with you help. We can probably still make it happen while adhering to social distancing protocol!
  • Join a committee: You or a group! Four committees each meet once a month, all on Tuesday evenings – all meetings are currently held via Google Meet due to COVID-19
    • First Tuesday of the month: fundraising and outreach – 5:30 
    • Second Tuesday of the month: Board Meetings, 7:00
    • Third Tuesdays: Finances and Fun – 5:30
    • Fourth Tuesdays: Stewardship, acquisitions and planning trails, etc. 7:00
  • Looking to volunteer your skills for personal growth? We’re likely able to help with that, too! We need folks with web skills, database design, editing, consulting, trail building…you name it. Just give me a call and I’ll see how we can mutually benefit one another.
