HELP EXPAND, REPAIR OR MAINTAIN COUNTY PARKS TRAILS…
St. Louis County Parks needs your help! If you love the outdoors and want to improve the parks that you enjoy, come join us for one of the outdoor workdays! Meet new friends and enjoy the outdoors, while helping us to improve our trails. Come out for one day or several times a season. Everyone’s help is needed!
No experience needed, as volunteers will learn what is needed from experienced staff and Volunteer Crew Leaders. Share in a morning of improving St. Louis County Park trails by removing limbs and debris, tree trimming and general trail maintenance. We will supply instructions, tools and water.
