Want to support your local trails and wildlife, but don’t like manual labor or getting dirty? Become an Eagle County Adopt A Trail Ambassador and help educate the community and trail users about seasonal closures to protect wildlife.
The Adopt a Trail Ambassador program is a new volunteer opportunity for people who love and support our local trails and wildlife. Volunteers must attend a half-day classroom training on Saturday, April 7. Topics to be covered include wildlife education, hiking preparedness, Leave No Trace and seasonal closures.
Following the training, volunteers will be asked to be present in the community or on the trails at least six times throughout the summer for roughly 30-minutes to one-hour, preferably between April 15 though June 20 to help enforce wildlife closures.
The goal of the program is to foster stewardship on our local public lands among local residents, businesses and trail enthusiasts. The presence of Adopt a Trail Ambassadors is aimed at reducing the negative impacts of human activity on wildlife around Eagle County’s trail system.
To volunteer or for more information, email Michelle at email@example.com by April 1.
