Volunteers will have the opportunity to serve as an extension of CMLC’s Stewardship Staff by…
· Walking an assigned trail route monthly or bimonthly
· Observing trails for damage, downed trees, adverse uses like horses or camping, or rare plants or wildlife seen and reporting these issues to CMLC staff
· Participating in pre-arranged workdays to take care of major invasive species removal or trail maintenance as needs arise
