  • 58 people are interested

Open space areas and park preserves are served by volunteer foot, bicycle and equestrian patrols. Patrol members assist park staff by being the extra eyes and ears, and provide the public with information on park resources and policies; help to ensure visitor safety and aid in the maintenance of trails and open areas. Patrol members provide their own bicycles and horses. This a terrific way to get out and enjoy our wonderful open space parks and preserves while serving the community and getting excersize too!
