The trail is always in need of help to maintain it for all to use. We are looking for volunteers who would take on one of the following for the summer. Some of these are needed weekly. If you don’t have that much time maybe you could partner with someone else to alternate. If you can help let us know here and we can make arrangements, in some cases we have equipment or help with gas money. Thanks for your consideration for helping out HOOT.
