As a Local Work Crew member you will join other volunteers recruited to work on trail projects that are beyond routine maintenance and the capabilities of the individual trail section maintainer. Projects might be repairing trail erosion, clearing downed trees, repairing bridges and structures, and the like. Projects are usually one day or less. Work parties are typically organized by the club or organization sponsoring the section or by the FLTC’s Regional Trail Coordinator for the area.
Many of our Local Work Crew members also have their own trail section they maintain.
Trail work projects are announced by e-mail and by local websites and newsletters. Let your trails chairperson, trail sponsor, or regional trail coordinator know if you will join the crew as this will greatly help with planning.
Your trails chairperson, trail sponsor, or regional trail coordinator will be responsible for reporting total hours of trail work, drive time, and administrative time.
To join your local trail work crew, simply contact your trails chairperson, trail sponsor, or regional trail coordinator and get your name on the distribution list.
