Young volunteers helping SVT clear trails for the busy summer season.
Stewardship of trails really does take a lot of effort and volunteerism! We know you've been out there enjoying the trails, but can you have some time to give back? A little help can go a long way!
Currently, SVT relies on a combination of volunteer Trail Stewards, a handful of organized trail work days, or a contract crew that had time available to do some routine maintenance and mowing. Most of our scheduled trail work days in 2019, involved the current project at Delaney Woods. In 2020, we will have more trails to maintain across our entire network. This will take many sets of eyes and ears, and hands, to get the work done! We owe it to our dedicated core volunteers for keeping our trails in great shape!
Slate Valley Trails (SVT) is looking for a few enthusiastic, trail-loving folks who can volunteer to steward and maintain our network.
Our goal for 2020 is to establish a solid group of Trail Stewards and Trail Crew volunteers!
What's Next for Trail Maintenance and Stewardship of Slate Valley Trails?
In 2020, watch our events calendar and E-News for scheduled Trail Work days/eves that rotate around the network throughout the peak season, including our Spring opener trail work day(s).
This winter, we will be working to complete our Trail Standards and Maintenance documents, assess signage and trailhead needs, etc.
Sign up for our E-News so you don't miss a chance to come to a committee meeting! Your participation will help shape SVT! It takes a community!

Be the Eyes and Ears for their trail(s) within their coverage area of the SVT network. Trail Stewards will be assigned one or more trails within a SVT trail network. Each trail network within the Slate Valley Trails (SVT) network will have one or more dedicated Trail Steward(s).
Stewards are not required to perform maintenance work, but if they are comfortable in tackling any trail issues on their own, they are free to do so.
