WHOSE HELP IS REQUIRED

At trail events, you work under the supervision of a trail leader.  If you are interested in working on a specific section of trail on your own schedule, we offer the Adopt-A-Trail program.

HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Each year, people like you help to care for over 125 miles of trails in the Blue Hills Reservation.  

DESCRIPTION

We do everything from digging in the dirt, clipping branches, painting blazes, moving rocks, building steps, changing and building trails.  Every trail project is unique and we have work for volunteers of all abilities and experiences (including none).  We teach you everything you need to know and why.
