Do you enjoy the outdoors and giving back to the community? Then consider getting involved as a volunteer in the county’s Adopt-A-Trail program.
According to a release, there are more than 25 miles of trails in the county’s parks.
The Adopt-A-Trail program entails volunteers working on maintaining those trails, picking up litter and debris along a stretch of trail at least once or twice a year for a two-year period, according to a release.
The Prince William Parks and Recreation Department (PWPRD) will provide some tools, such as rakes, shovels, and tree limb loppers to volunteers that participate in the program, stated a release.
“Scout Troops, 4-H clubs, ecology clubs, schools or school clubs, families, individuals, businesses, church groups, sports teams, home-school groups, or other organizations can adopt a trail,” stated a release.
If students take part in the program, they can put the clean-up time toward their community service hours requirement, according to a release. Businesses are also encouraged to take part.
