Adopt-A-Trail: Volunteers Needed

Spend some time outdoors and lend a hand in keeping our center & trails beautiful.

Spring has arrived here at the Green Mountain Audubon Center and we’re gearing up for the second year of our Adopt a Trail program! If you’re interested in spending time outdoors while volunteering to keep our 250+ acre center beautiful for all who visit, here’s what you need to know:

Adopters will commit to three seasons (Spring, Summer, and Fall)of conducting Trail Work Days and Trail Inspections. Trail work is expected to be done at least once every spring, summer, and fall. Tasks can consist of but aren’t limited to, pruning overgrown brush, clearing trails of debris, restocking and/or updating kiosk materials, weed whacking, mowing, and reporting trail hazards, vandalism, or safety issues. Some of these activities are restricted to adults only (18+). A Trail Inspection is a simple walk-through of your trail to make sure no issues or obstacles are present and to report them as they appear. Trail Inspections should occur any month the volunteer is not committing to a Trail Work Day. 

Anyone over the age of 18 can become a Trail Adopter. If you are adopting with a group that includes children under the age of 18, an adult must always be present during Trail Work Days and the use of certain tools are restricted.
