Special Volunteers Needed:
Camp Hospitality and Volunteer Outreach

We're looking for some special volunteers to help out the Arizona Trail Association Volunteer Program. This time we're not asking for folks who are ready to swing a pick or attack a wayward shrub . . . we're looking for people who are comfortable helping out with event hosting and/or with the day-to-day business of maintaining a growing and dynamic volunteer program. If you're interested in getting more involved with event hosting, feeding/supporting volunteers and helping us continue to engage our army of trail workers and stewards, we would love to hear from you. We are ready to provide the training and materials if you can provide your passion and energy for making the Arizona Trail great!

Camp Hospitality Opportunities:
September 24-25: Stewardship Conference in Pine
Oct 9-15: Volunteer Vacations event on Highline Trail near Pine
October 29: ATA Sponsored Trail Work Day (location TBA)
November 5-6: Trail Volunteer Training in Patagonia

Volunteer Outreach Opportunities:
There are a number of tasks associated with Volunteer Outreach and Coordination that the ATA needs help with! From responding to requests for more information on volunteering on the AZ Trail to tracking volunteer hours and developing a Volunteer Reward Program, we have a lot of great ideas that YOU may be able to help make a reality.

For more information on any of these opportunities, please contact .

You can also contact one of the many trail stewards who oversee the Arizona Trail's 43 passages. They can always use experienced and non-experienced workers.
