Join Us as a Volunteer!
People of all skills and strengths are welcome. The level of effort ranges from light to heavy-duty chain saw and rock work.
Adopt a trail: Adopters monitor their designated trail twice per month. They maintain signs, clear encroaching or fallen vegetation with hand tools, and repair small issues along the trail. Adopters report larger issues to the lead designee for the trail.
Maintain trails: clear vegetation and fallen trees, repair trails and boardwalks, fix creek crossings, maintain signage, etc.
Construct new trails: work under the leadership of a crew leader to clear vegetation; construct new trail; install steps, boardwalk and erosion control; install signage; and other duties as needed.
Become a crew leader: Volunteers with past experience and special skills, such as chainsaw certification, may lead a crew to maintain or construct trails.
Public information: Assist with developing and distributing information about trails and the BAT Committee’s vision for the Bayfield Area Trails
