Durant Trail Maintenance

Registration has not yet started for this event. Please select another event or check back again soon for additional information.


Event Description:

Join staff in helping to ensure that the trails of Durant Nature Preserve are safe and functional. Our trail system could benefit from some work and repair. Please come out and give us a hand gravelling, mulching, covering large roots, and repairing the trail tread.


Volunteer Duties:

Volunteers will repair the trail tread and will cover large roots and other parts of the trail with mulch. We will be using wheel barrows, shovels, and rakes.


Volunteer Impact:

Volunteers will help park staff to improve/repair degraded sections of existing trail within the preserve. This will help Preserve staff keep the existing trail system safe and functional.


Work Environment:

We will be working in the woods on uneven terrain. There may be contact with snakes and bugs. The farthest that we will be from a restroom facility will be 1.5 miles.

Pre-registration is required. Adults must register and accompany children.

Volunteers must be at least 14 years old to volunteer. Adults must register and accompany children under the age of 16. Everyone who volunteers must sign a release form. If anyone is under the age of 18, then a parent or guardian must sign their form as well.
