National Trails Day

We know how important the trails are to you and here’s your chance to give back! Show your love in a socially-distanced-sort-of-way by participating in National Trails Day.

When:

06/06/2020

Where:

All over town using your Bingo Card!

Time:

All day

Cost:

Free!

Details:

We’ve adjusted National Trails Day volunteer projects and celebrations to adapt to social distancing. Unfortunately we won’t be able to gather and work on large scale projects together this year. We have cancelled our post-work volunteer picnic as well.

This won’t stop us from getting some work done on National Trails Day! We’ve identified several volunteer projects you can do to support the trails on your own.

Kick Off Event:

Join us for a Virtual Kick Off Event on Friday June 5th at 6:30pm (this time has been adjusted to start after the National Day of Action for Black Lives @ Bogert Park). You’ll learn about the volunteer projects, hear instructions and safety tips and get excited for the day!

The kick off will be hosted via Zoom:
