Our trail supporters regularly log hundreds of hours to keep this historic trail alive for current and future generations. Volunteer with us and have a hand in history.
We’re always looking for volunteers in the following positions:
Trail stewards are the eyes and ears of Alberta’s Iron Horse Trail, protecting and improving the trail as they go. They commit to making monthly reports detailing the conditions on a defined section of trail. They look for potential hazards, remove deadfall and rocks, and report trail conditions to the Trail Boss. Their suggestions for trail improvements are much appreciated.
Trail steward duties often include:
- Reporting on needed maintenance
- Repairing and replacing signs
- Litter collection
- Trail surface maintenance
- Winter: trail grooming
- Communicating trail etiquette & trail conditions to trail users
- Answering trail users’ questions
- Handing out maps
Trail stewards are the ambassadors of the trail as they visit with trail users they meet along the way. They wear safety vests identifying them as stewards for their particular section of the trail.
We appreciate all contributions, whether it is the occasional hour doing clean-up on a favorite section of the trail, or the long-term commitment of our directors. There is something to suit everyone’s talents and areas of interest.
