Volunteer Trail Steward Program

At RRCT, volunteers make the world go ’round. The volunteer Trail Steward Program is designed to help RRCT staff by assigning reliable volunteers to specific RRCT properties and empowering them to conduct basic trail maintenance, monitoring, and create relationships with other preserve users. This program is a great fit for those looking for an independent (yet collaborative) experience at a particular preserve, and for those who regularly have time to help make our conserved lands shine.
