We just completed the first season of our volunteer program, the Stay The Trail Ambassadors
. We hope that you would like to get involved and help us promote responsible trail use this next year.
in 2012, our volunteers donated $65k worth of time
assisting with trail work and monitoring/repairing trail conditions. Our trail stewardship projects covered over 200 miles of trails
. 93 individual trail sites were evaluated, addressed, and improved. We will be blowing these numbers out of the water next year.
Through the Ambassador program, enthusiasts have the opportunity to participate in sharing info about responsible trail use with other trail users and assist us with trail improvement events. Stay The Trail Ambassadors are encouraged to Ride, Educate, Monitor, and Maintain.
Each aspect is something that volunteers can do anytime they hit the trails. We can go into detail about the importance of each in another post if there is interest.
Bottom line is that everyone can help take action to help protect trails and natural resources anytime they hit the trail. You can keep an eye out for issues that need to be fixed or simply be prepared to share info about Stay The Trail.
We train volunteers using online meetings. Attend one, 1.5 hour training session and you will be an Ambassador. We have several in the immediate future. You can check our Website Calendar
