Volunteer with Friends of Badger Mountain

Volunteer for Weeding Crews

Your participation in removing noxious weeds is essential and has a significant impact on the local ecosystem of plants and animals in the preserves. By helping us remove these weeds, you are directly contributing to the protection and restoration of the natural habitat.

If you or a group you belong to is interested in joining a Weeding Crew day, contact Dave Beach (Weed Master). Dave leads weeding parties every Wednesday and Sunday, June thru August. Look at our calendar of upcoming events to catch a weekly opportunity.

Volunteer for Trailwork

Every spring and fall, our trailmaster leads regular work parties on the peaks, completing trail maintenance and improvements. The work ranges from raking gravel back on to the trails, to removing weeds and general tread repair.

If you’re interested in volunteering, contact Jim by email at [email protected] and let him know. Mention “add me to your trail work list” so you’ll always know when the next work party is coming up.
