Volunteer

TART Trails is grateful for many years of support from a diverse group of outdoor enthusiasts who continue to support the organization with thousands of volunteer hours annually. Many volunteers work as trail builders, trail maintainers, office assistants, and board and committee members. It is a great way to meet new people, learn new skills, and enjoy the outdoors with your friends and family. Whatever your age or ability, we need your help.

  • Events – Our events require the help of many dedicated volunteers. For Smart Commute Week and Tour de TART, we have volunteer opportunities available during the event as well as positions available on planning committees that work in the weeks prior to the eventTART Cleanup.
  • Fieldwork – There is always something to do on the TART Trail system.
    TART Trails hosts work bees in the spring, summer and fall to take care of such things as dead tree removal, trash pickup, spreading woodchips, and brush trimming. Most of the fieldwork is done by Ambassadors, volunteers, community groups, scouts, or TART Trails staff and board members.
  • Adopt-A-Brochure Rack Program – Volunteers agree to keep a trailside brochure box filled during the summer months. The brochure box locations and the volunteers who fill them are listed below. If you would like to fill one of the un-assigned boxes please call the TART office at 941-4300 and arrange to pick up your supply of brochures.
