Volunteers constructing boardwalk--Hog Hollow Trail
Be a Volunteer
Volunteerism is the core of the Mohican Trails Clubs ability to
fulfill its Mission. Through the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, we have cleared trails, opened new trails, constructed bridges and walkways and completed our most ambitious project to date, the Big Lyons Falls Stairs project.
In cooperation and coordination with our public sector partners-the Mohican State Park and State Forest-and our volunteers, we have been able to improve the hiking trails located within the Mohican State Park and the Mohican State Forest, raise funds for various improvement projects, provide hiking opportunities and ensure trail accessibility.
Most of our work is done by member volunteers. We are
always looking for new members to step up and help us with this work, so maybe you are interested in doing something new and interesting.
If you want to lend a hand and enjoy the outdoors at the same time, please feel free to contact us for volunteer opportunities. Membership is not a requirement to be a volunteer.
Or if you want to participate in our next work day, go to our Workdays page or the MTC Calendar to view the next work day and meeting place information. Then just show up and have fun.
What to bring for a Workday
People volunteer for different reasons, and you might fall into some of these categories:
• You’ve enjoyed hiking with in the Mohican area or elsewhere, and want to give back.
• You’ve just retired, and are looking for ways to use your skills and have fun.
• You’re new to the area and/or would like to make friends.
• You have some particular skill or passion that you’d like to put to good use.
• You know nothing about trails or what it takes to run the club, but want to learn.
• You have time on your hands, and this sounds like a fun way to spend it.
All of these are good reasons to volunteer for a work project with the Mohican Trails Club. We also have been assisted by local clubs that utilize the trail systems, such as the trail runners, mountain bikers and the equestrians. We hope to hear from you.
