The Forest Resource Education Center (FREC) has 8 short loop trails of less than 1-mile. We also have an arboretum and pollinator garden all in year-round need of general maintenance. That is: pruning, raking, leaf blowing, sign cleaning, trash pickup and light carpentry. All tools are provided but it is best if you can bring your own gloves.

We have educational programs that require trails be periodically inspected and maintenance to keep them safe and navigable. Join our group and stay active outdoors while helping us to promote healthy forests!
