Trail Adopters Needed

18 Jan 2020 8:58 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

We recently connected with our dedicated long-time adopters, the primary force for monitoring and maintaining the trail in such good shape. Unfortunately, several of them are no longer able to help with this important job. We would love for you to step up and take over. Expectations of adopters are minimal: check the trail about once a month, take care of problems that you can, and let us know about problems that are too big for you. We are always looking for ideas for projects as well, so if you have suggestions on making your section better, we want to know that too!

At this time, we need coverage 1) of Riverview Park, 2) from Holmes Avenue to Melbourne, 3) from Fifth Street to Jordan Park, 4) from Jordan Park to Avon, 5) from Fontaine Avenue to Stribling, 6) from Meadow Creek to Pen Park, and 7) from Pen Park to River Run. It is helpful to have double coverage of any section to lighten the load, so please reach out if you’re willing to help anywhere else. 

These trails are imaginary without adopters doing the real work of scouting and maintenance. If you are interested or want to talk more about it, please be in touch. We also have details on the role on Trail Adopters page.
