Join us in celebrating National Trails Day by helping to build and maintain trails at the New Canaan Land Trust’s Colhoun Preserve!
 
We will have a range of volunteer opportunities, suitable for all ages and skill levels. The main project will include the construction of new boardwalks that will span wetlands and facilitate trail navigation. Volunteers will help carry materials to the building site and assemble 100+ feet of new boardwalks. Other opportunities will include delineating existing trails by lining them with logs, and collecting litter from the trails and parking area.
 
To participate, sign up for a 90-minute time slot using the link, below. Join us from either 9:00am-10:30am or 10:30am-noon, and indicate which activity you would like to help with.
 
Should enough volunteers be interested, we will make available additional volunteer opportunities at another preserve.
 
Volunteers for our National Trails Day community service are encouraged to bring work gloves, water, insect repellent, and/or sunscreen. Long pants and sturdy shoes are strongly recommended.
