New Adopt a Trail program seeks volunteers

Adopt a Trail is Quinte Conservation’s newest volunteer program that aims to bring like-minded individuals together to help maintain hiking trails at some of Quinte’s 23 conservation areas.

“We have such a diverse trail system throughout our watershed,” said Maya Navrot, Quinte Conservation Education and Stewardship Co-ordinator. “Trails are always in need of some kind of work, whether it is maintaining the trails through pruning or collecting garbage that gets left behind. Unfortunately we don’t have the staff power to be on every trail all the time.”

Quinte Conservation hopes that introducing the initiative will attract dedicated individuals, who enjoy spending time in nature and at the conservation areas, to come on board and volunteer to be a trail steward.

Adopt a Trail is for anyone that enjoys being outdoors. Volunteers will work with staff to find a trail that is best suited for them. The duties of the trail steward will be to help take care of their assigned trail. This includes cleaning brush off the trails, pruning shrubs and trees along the trail, and picking up any garbage that they find.

A volunteer information night is set for Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018 at Quinte Conservation’s main office on Hwy 2 in Belleville.

Those interested in the program must first sign up with Kathryn Di Donato by emailing kdidonato@quinteconservation.ca or by calling (613) 968 – 3434 ext. 115
