Volunteer Opportunities

Wide assortment of roles still available on Challenge Day!

What's better than participating in the Challenge? Volunteering for it! 

Saturday, June 19, is our annual Rachel Carson Trail Challenge. We have some vital volunteer roles that are still up for grabs. Please consider helping out! You'll get a cool Rachel Carson T-shirt, karma points for volunteering and a guaranteed good time!
