Volunteers Make it Happen
The Trail’s restoration, stewardship and programming needs vary seasonally and offer diverse volunteer opportunities year-round, on and off the trail. Last year’s volunteers…
- Assisted at 17 Trail Work Days, 5 Seed cleaning days;
- Removed invasive weeds and plants to prevent their spread;
- Hand watered young plants and trees until roots were established;
- Restored pathways with wood chips and mulched trees;
- Performed soil restoration and planted native plants to enhance the trail’s wildlife habitat;
- Monitored and released monarch butterflies from the trail’s butterfly hatchery;
With spring’s arrival, volunteers return to the trail to remove winter’s debris, mulch paths, prepare the site for migrating birds and emerging blooms. The Rest & Restore site at Mary Street offers an elevated view of trail from its recently installed wooden benches and seats made from fallen trees. Join the Friends at one of its Trail Work days, listed under Events and Programs .
Many thanks to our volunteers and supporters! It is only with their generous support and time commitment that the Trail has become a valuable recreational resource, a supportive wildlife habitat and a trail for all seasons.
