About

As a part of our guided hiking program, we invite you to help us lead our interpretive hikes and walks on some of our best local parks! We need interpretive hike co-leaders as well as sweeps to help us ensure our attendees a quality and safe experience. Volunteers will help TMPF staff lead interpretive hikes by identifying and telling attendees about the natural and cultural history of the hike area.

Walk Co-Leader

Responsibilities: Volunteers will co-lead interpretive walks that last one hour. These will take place on Thursdays during the summer, and possibly in the spring and fall. Co-leaders will talk about the flora, fauna, and cultural history of local parks. Volunteers will be provided a program outline for each park and will prepare for the walk with TMPF team members earlier in the week.

Walk "Sweeper"

Responsibilities: Volunteers will make sure all participants are safe and enjoying themselves. They will remain at the back of the group. They will also help ensure all participants have completed a liability waiver and other paperwork.
