VOLUNTEERING

Trail Problem Picture There are a variety of ways one may help the Greenway Trail including:

  1. Observing problems and reporting them

  2. Maintaining a specific section of the trail

  3. Trail Work Crew

Observing and Reporting Problems
A Volunteer would sign up to be responsible for a specific section of the Greenway Trail. The Volunteer would walk the trail a minimum of three times a year, Spring, Summer, and Fall. During these inspections, the Volunteer would note any problems, such as a tree fallen across the trail, erosion problems, bush encroachment, etc. The Volunteer would then report when they made the inspection and its results. The report may be made via this Web Site or to the Trail Master.

If you are interested in doing this volunteer work, do the following:

  1. Look at the table at the bottom of this page and select a section of trail that needs an Observing/Reporting Volunteer.
  2. Send an e-mail message giving your name, address, telephone number, and the section of trail you will cover.

Maintaining a Section of the Trail
A volunteer would sign up to clear a section of the Greenway Trail of the obstacles reported. The volunteer would be notified of the problem via e-mail or by periodically checking this web site. Usually a pair of loppers and a bow saw are sufficient. Other tools may be obtained for single day use at Seneca Creek State Park. After completing the trail maintenance, you would send in a report listing the work done. Major problems, such as a tree too big for a bow saw, would be noted in your report. The Trail Master would add that problem to the list for the Trail Work Crew.

If you are interested in doing this volunteer work, do the following:

  1. Look at the table at the bottom of this page and select a section of trail that needs a Maintenance Volunteer.
  2. Send an e-mail message giving your name, address, telephone number, and the section of trail you will cover.

Trail Work Crew
A Volunteer would get involved in building new trail and removing major obstacles by using the two man saw and other tools. Trail work usually entails significant physical work. The Trail Master schedules the Trail Work Crew as needed. He is responsible for providing advance notice to members of the Crew.

If you are interested in becoming a member of the Trail Work Crew, send an e-mail message giving your name, address, and telephone number. Also, if you have experience doing trail maintenance, mention what you have done.
