Trail Maintenance Volunteer

Description

Help our Property team maintain 8 miles of amazing wilderness trails. We have all the necessary tools you will need to trim back encroaching brush, clear fallen limbs, and make simple trail repairs.  Volunteers can work on their own or with other volunteers.  We also partner with The Trail Center for larger trail projects and invite all of our Trail volunteers to participate in these fun events.  The spring season is typically when we need the most help.
