The City’s Adopt-a-Trail Program is an all-volunteer program that provides citizens with an opportunity to become involved in conserving and maintaining our trails. “Adopters” can participate as an individual, a family, club or an office group. All it takes is a willingness to get out and work on your trail and have fun improving and maintaining this important community amenity.
The Trails and Open Space Committee will provide orientation and training, including review of some general rules for volunteers, specifications for the trail adopted and safety training if needed. The Committee can also provide field supervision for your group. This includes field visits while your work is in progress as well as additional maintenance and other post work inspection. By adopting a trail, you or your organization would provide maintenance on all or a section of one of our trails quarterly by:
- Picking up debris and trash along the trail
- Clearing the trail of rocks, sticks and debris
- Cutting brush and vegetation away from the trail
- Informing the Committee of any hazards
