- Consider taking: chain saw, hatchet or limber, garbage bag, shovel, hazard marking tape, drill and screws.

- Provide feedback: trail maintenance reports can be completed and sent in, send photos, let us know how many hours for tracking purposes.

We have a significant amount of work being done behind the scenes by working committees of Directors, volunteers, members and community or business partners. If any of these are of interest, contact the Committee Chair. Your commitment can be flexible with meetings done face-to-face, micro-missions or sub-committees, tele-conference, email and Facebook Room discussions.
