For a calendar and sign-up of all trail work opportunities in Weber Country, please join us at: http://www.meetup.com/Weber-County-Trail-Construction-and-Maintenance/
There are many ways to volunteer for Weber Pathways! From large groups to individual and one-time to on-going projects, there is certainly something for everyone. We encourage volunteers to use their own skills and interests to co-create a volunteer experience that is both fun and rewarding.
Help us build and upgrade trails, install trail signs, repair fencing, clear downed trees and branches, pull invasive weeds, or collect trash.
These volunteers will be leading others on the trails. Outings include hiking, mountain biking, dog walks, snowshoeing, and anything else non-motorized! Outings can also be themed or educationally oriented such as history, flora, fauna, “moonlight hikes”, geology, geocaching, photography, plein art, etc. Volunteers can also lead outings specific for adults, kids, or families.
Volunteers will get to choose what type of outing they would like to lead, the time and date of the outing, and how often they would like to lead outings (even once is ok!). All volunteers will attend a volunteer orientation before the start of the outings season. Training will cover safety, flora/fauna, trail etiquette, and trail descriptions.
If you are new to the trails but would still like to volunteer, our training will include guided outings. As a public outings leader, you will be an important part in developing a stronger, healthier, more environmentally-friendly community.
Help Weber Pathways at events, in web site administration, data base/mail list design and maintenance, graphics arts, writing, or general office support.
Or, create your own ways to volunteer!
