America’s trails, parks, and outdoor spaces are universally beloved… but it takes a lot of work to keep them in tip top shape. That’s where National Trails Day comes into play.
On June 2nd, thousands of Americans will come to together to volunteer their time in improving 2,802 miles of trails. (That’s about the distance from the east to west coast!)
How can you participate?
Several local nonprofit organizations are hosting volunteer events in honor of National Trails Day, including:
- The Austin Parks Foundation – 365 Days Of Hiking Celebrates One Year (Barton Creek Greenbelt cleanup)!
- Pease Park Conservancy – help maintain and preserve the Shoal Creek Hike And Bike Trail
- Williamson Creek East Nature Trail – join the official opening of Williamson Creek East Greenbelt Nature Trail
