The Adopt-A-Trail program is an opportunity for conservation-minded groups to sponsor a section of Jones Park’s extensive trail system by controlling invasive non-native plants and conducting routine trail maintenance. A custom, laser-etched sign will mark your designated trail.

Groups will be assigned a section of Jones Park’s trail system, based on the size and ability of the group. Your first workday begins with a short training session in invasive plant identification and (non-chemical) removal methods. Each group will be asked to commit to conducting a workday (about 4 hours) every three months to remove any invasive plants. Sponsoring groups will be asked to commit to maintaining a section of trail for a minimum of one year.

No experience is necessary. ANY group can help! For example, scouts, schools, church groups, home-school groups, conservation organizations, companies in need of volunteer hours for their employees, etc. There is no maximum or minimum size group.

In addition to receiving a custom laser-etched sign, each group will be helping Jones Park remain in a natural and native state. Native wildlife will benefit from the removal of invasive plant species, and future visitors to the park will also benefit from your efforts.

Participants must wear closed toe shoes.
