Volunteer Opportunities

Some activities for which we need volunteers

Many people aren’t aware of the wide range of opportunities to volunteer for the Conservancy. Helping on a trail cleanup or maintenance work crew is one way, but there are plenty of other ways to contribute. Here are some:

  • Update the web site events calendar, post reports and pictures from events, and so on. No special web skills needed.
  • Organize and carry out a social media plan for the Conservancy.
  • Increase publicity for the Conservancy events. Write and place articles in newsletters, newspapers, periodicals, TV, the web, and so on.
  • Help maintain relationships with the municipalities our trails pass through.
  • Represent the Conservancy to organizations which have related interests, such as scout troops, school groups, church groups, outdoor clubs and others.
  • Plan and lead hikes.
  • Become a steward on a section of the Baker Trail.
  • Expand and develop our membership benefits program.
  • Help edit and/or produce our newsletter.
  • Solicit your company, club or organization to sponsor the Challenge and/or the UltraChallenge.
  • Help maintain good relations with landowners along the trails.
  • Assist in developing plans for acquiring land or easements along our trails.

If you’re willing to help with any of these activities, please email info@rachelcarsontrails.org.

And remember, this list is not complete. If you have knowledge or skills which don’t exactly match any of these but may benefit the Conservancy, please feel free to suggest a way you can contribute.
