Segment Steward Forms & Documents

This page contains links to various forms, documents and information to be used by the Arizona Trail Segment Stewards.
 

Segment Steward Agreement

Stewards should complete a Segment Steward Agreement.
 

Group Liability Form

The Group Liability Form is for use at single-day volunteer events only. Please have participants read the waiver language and sign. The form should be carried with the event organizer for the duration of the event. You can also use this form to collect and record hours. Completed waiver forms should be returned to the ATA office.
 

Individual Liability Form

The Individual Liability Form should be used whenever there is an over-night or multi-day event with volunteers. This form includes a space for the volunteer to record emergency contact information and pertinent medical notifications. These forms should be carried with the event organizer for the duration of the event. Completed waiver forms should be returned to the ATA office.
 

Steward Trail Assessment

Stewards survey and assess their segments at least annually to stay current on conditions, needs and features. While not all segments need a great deal of work, resources (volunteer groups, youth crews) occasionally come available on short notice, and it is quite helpful to know where they can be utilized most effectively. The trail assessment form guides the assessment and documents trail conditions and needs. It can be downloaded and completed in the field or on a computer, and then sent to the Regional Steward.
 

Tailgate Safety Meeting

The various land management agencies in Arizona have a form they use for documenting safety meetings at work events. One such form can be found here.
 

Trail Construction and Maintenance Notebook

The Forest Service trail construction and maintenance guide contains a wealth of trails information. It is available here.
