National Trails Day
Saturday, June 5, 2021

National Trails Day (NTD) is an opportunity for local citizens to help improve their park system, and get some productive exercise.
NTD is aimed at trail advocacy and service. Around the country, thousands of hikers, bikers, rowers, horseback riders, trail clubs, federal and local agencies, land trusts, and businesses come together in partnership to advocate for, maintain, and clean up public lands and trails. For mor information visit https://americanhiking.org/national-trails-day/

There is no need to pre-register; just visit one of the sites listed below, or drop by your favorite park or school for some cleanup.
Please conduct any activities appropriately social distanced; basically, a walk in the park with just your personal group.
If you can’t make it to NTD and would like to volunteer on another date, please contact us.
