Become a trail tender


The 60 miles of well-maintained and well-marked trails that wind through some of our most spectacular properties are taken care of by a team of volunteers known as the Trail Tenders. Armed with chainsaws and clippers and cans of paint for blazing trees, the Trail Tenders make it possible for walkers of all ages and abilities to enjoy the hundreds of acres of open space the Land Trust has saved over the past 50 years. They clear away storm-downed trees, build simple bridges, and construct wooden walkways where the going is rough or marshy.

If you are interested in working on our trails alongside other volunteers, please get in touch with our lead Trail Tender Stuart Green at He is always happy to add new workers to his list and welcomes reports of hiking conditions!
