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 RSVP, please email Madeline Logowitz (firstname.lastname@example.org). Link to email.

Volunteering in the Age of COVID-19
Due to COVID-19, we have new protocols in place to safeguard our crew members and our volunteers.
Please, if you have had any symptoms related to COVID-19 during the last 14 days, do not volunteer at this time.
What To Bring & Wear for Volunteering
Our trail projects involve hiking, lifting rocks and logs, and using hand tools to dig, move, and sculpt soil. Be prepared to get dirty! Volunteers are welcome to help for either a half day or full day.
What To Wear
- Work gloves
- Close-toed shoes that are comfortable for hiking
- Long pants
- T-shirt or long-sleeve shirt
- Jackets and layers for changing weather conditions. Temperatures and wind change quickly, and the desert can be cold.

Grand County Trails is committed to educating volunteers about stewardship in the desert environment. Please visit our Education page to learn more.
