PERKS OF BECOMING AN ADOPTER

  • Free day-use for Adopters
  • Access to nature center locations
  • Free fishing and camping opportunities
  • Free miniature golf at Rancho Jurupa Park
  • Discounted stays at Lawler Lodge & Lawler Alpine Cabins
  • Free lap swimming and discounted entry fees for The Cove and The Drop Zone waterparks.

ADOPT-A-TRAIL VOLUNTEER POSITIONS

Adopter

Agrees to manage and maintain a section of trail for a one-year period. Adopters are responsible for completing the application, recruiting volunteers for their work days, and communicating with the Program Coordinator throughout the term of their contract.

Crew Leader

Crew Leaders are responsible for leading Adopters and their volunteers in a successful work day on their adopted trail segment. This means coordinating with the Program Coordinator to have the tools available, leading the Tail Gate Safety Session, ensuring all required paperwork is filled out, and that the overall event is a success for both the Adopters and the District. Adopters can become Crew Leaders and serve in both roles.

Trail Steward

Assigned to a particular location, Stewards report on conditions within their assigned area on a monthly basis. Equestrians, cyclists, and hikers are welcome.

Trail Patroller

Not assigned to a particular location, Patrollers report monthly on different sites across the county. Equestrians, cyclists, and hikers are welcome.

Adopters are an integral part of the District's mission to protect and manage our areas of scenic and historical importance. Through trail stewardship, Adopters keep our multi-use trails clear of debris and growth. With support and guidance from the AAT Program Coordinator, Adopters and their group are given the tools they need to be successful and have fun!
