Volunteers for Conservation

Volunteer Trail Steward Program

The Volunteer Trail Steward Program invites individuals like you to become integral members of a committed team devoted to safeguarding the beauty of our trails. With ten conservation areas boasting extensive kilometers of trails, our mission to keep these natural havens pristine and accessible requires collective effort. With your help, we can ensure that these trails remain free of debris and hazards, providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all who use them. By clearing debris, fallen branches, and reporting significant issues to staff, you will help maintain safe passage for hikers, bikers, and wildlife alike. Your efforts ensure that all visitors can enjoy the trails in a secure environment.

Stay tuned for our next training session.
