2019 volunteer work starting off at a record setting pace!

Apr 16, 2019 | News

Although we are still in early spring, there has been a lot of trail activity in Northwest NC. Volunteers have been busy. To date in 2019, volunteers at events we have organized have contributed over 700 hours of work already!

This large number has been bolstered by huge turnouts at several workdays at Kerr Scott, Lake James State Park, Zacks Fork, and in Pisgah for the Old Fort Trail Weekend. In addition to the work parties, local crews are contributing to the efforts on those trail systems, as well as at Lake Hickory, Rocky Knob, and Wilson Creek.

Thanks so much to all volunteers for their efforts out on our trails!

Interested in helping out? We have some nice volunteer incentives this year including swag and free camping at some of the campgrounds. Please see our calendar for upcoming events, or contact us by email if you want to get involved with a local crew.
