Burke Trails is a county wide initiative to coordinate volunteer workdays to build and maintain natural surface trails. Leveraging the efforts of all non-profit trail groups on needed trail work will allow partners to combine resources. This in turn will increase volunteer numbers, knowledge, skills, leadership, and advocacy.
Volunteers attending a workday: Bring a daypack with water and snacks. Closed toe shoes. No experience required. Bring trail tools if you have them, but there will be extras on site.

Each non-profit partner has agreed to promote all workdays via their social media and email lists. The posts and emails will mention that the workday is a community effort with partners and volunteers from [list of all trail organizations]. Each event will have a Sponsor that organizes and holds the event. That Sponsor will be responsible for an email with all the workday details and social media event post. At a minimum, we would like to schedule one weekend community workday per quarter. If additional ones develop, then that’s great.
