Group Work Days  /
Adopt-a-Trail Days

Take ownership of your favorite public lands by holding a trail work day with your organization or business!

Citizen involvement is needed to help maintain, enhance and preserve the more than 1,000 miles of trails located in our regional community of Rifle to Aspen. With RFOV, groups such as clubs, schools, and businesses engage in volunteer service projects that tackle smaller projects on specific trails, parks, or river-front parcels. We provide the technical assistance, tools, and logistical support to help your group plan and accomplish each successful trail work day. You provide the volunteers and sponsorship. Groups can get involved for a full or half-day project or commit to adopt an area and perform small projects a 2-3 times a year!

Your Commitment

Recruit a small group of people (minimum 8-10 customers / members / staff) to perform maintenance work for a half or full day on a specific trail.

Manage and organize your events by promoting / recruiting and rewarding your volunteers with a lunch or dinner at the end of the day as a way of thanking them for their hard work and commitment. You may also want to reward them with a special tee shirt, hat, etc., such as ‘Pomeroy Sports Trail Crew’.


Your Organization’s Benefits
