Thank you for your interest in helping maintain Capitol Land Trust’s (CLT) public preserves!
Becoming a Trail Steward is a great way to give back to the preserves you love visiting and helps to ensure they remain great places for you and others to visit. Trail Stewards are our eyes and ears on the public preserves.
Currently, CLT has 4 preserves opened to the public. These preserves are all open for low-impact recreation from dawn until dusk and offer a variety of experiences in nature.
To become a Trail Steward first double check the volunteer position description to make sure this volunteer role is a good fit for you. Here are the key responsibilities you will have as a Trail Steward:
- Walk the trails at your preserve at least once a month and submit the online form.
- Pick up and dispose of small pieces of garbage.
- Clear/cut small branches or other small pieces of debris from the trails.
- Report any problems/observations to Capitol Land Trust (CLT) using an online form.
By having someone out at each preserve regularly we can make sure that our public preserves remain safe and enjoyable places for people to visit and connect with nature.
Complete the form below by selecting which preserve(s) you would like to be a volunteer Trail Steward for. After completing the form, you will receive an email with additional information to help you get started as well as a waiver for you to fill out and return to CLT once a year.
