Roll up your sleeves and let’s team up for a service project out on the trails! 

Join the Subaru/Leave No Trace Team, UpstateSORBA, Upstate Stewards, and Paris Mountain State Park staff for a fun volunteer day out on the trails. Volunteers will work on projects to address the recreational impacts to the park. These projects may include trail maintenance, litter pick up, pruning, and trail blazing. 

ALL user groups and skill levels are welcome! Kid and family friendly, and no experience is necessary. We’ll divide into groups based on skill/difficulty level and interest.

Volunteers will be introduced to Leave No Trace and the Hot Spot Program, receive a rundown of the service project and safety briefing, and learn more about how to protect and preserve Paris Mountain!
