Volunteering is a vital component of our organization. Volunteers make it possible for us to achieve more work with our limited field staff, and volunteer hours help to pay off grants with matching funds for hours worked. Volunteering your time to work on a trail will give you an empowering sense of respect and ownership for the trail, and you will be reminded of that experience every time you use it. 

For volunteer opportunities please check our volunteer and event calendar, or view our social media feed on our Home Page. To RSVPplease email Madeline Logowitz (mlogowitz@grandcountyutah.net). Link to email.
