Volunteerism Working Group
Much of the everyday work of managing recreation trails in Arizona is completed using the good will and hard work of passionate volunteers. Recruiting, training, managing and retaining volunteers becomes a skill often overlooked within the scope of Outdoor Recreation, and the resource of labor can feel difficult to access and maintain.
The Volunteerism Working Group aims to pool resources and work together to maximize organizations' capacity to work with volunteers and to facilitate passionate trail users finding opportunities that meet their schedules and interests.
Shared Calendar Presentation
Did you know that someone has already created a shared volunteer calendar for Arizona? Wild AZ has partnered with other trail organizations to create a shared calendar system that may make it easier to advertise and organize volunteer events statewide. Luke Koenig, Volunteer Coordinator for Wild AZ presented on the resource to the Working Group on 1/9/23. Click below for a recording of that session.
If you have questions or would like to learn more about the calendar, please email Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org.
