Work/Walk Parties

Join us monthly from May through November.

We combine a maintenance work party with a group walk on one of our beautiful trails. Everyone is welcome! Those who want to work on keeping our trails open, clean, and available to the public can lend a hand. Those who prefer to walk can enjoy a scenic walk on the trails.

A regular schedule makes it easy to plan ahead! Bring your friends, family, or guests. You don't have to be a member of Saco Bay Trails to participate!

Get Some Exercise, Enjoy Nature, and Give Back!

Other Volunteer Opportunities

Here are just a few examples of things we need help with...

Trail Stewards

Trail stewards visit their adopted trail sections regularly, looking for ways to improve the experience for everyone. They fix minor issues and report larger challenges to Saco Bay Trails. It's a fun way to give back to the community, get some exercise, and spend time in nature.

Social Media Volunteer

We are seeking a volunteer to share their love of trails & nature online. Create engaging content, manage our platforms, and grow our audience. Be our online voice! Flexible opportunity. Make a community impact & gain valuable social media experience.

Volunteer Coordinator

We are seeking a passionate Volunteer Coordinator to manage volunteer communication, match volunteers with opportunities, track volunteer hours, and organize volunteer recognition and celebration.
