France Girard is happy to welcome volunteers (new and returning) who have agreed to adopt a trail for the 8th season of the program. The program runs from May 15 to October 15 and volunteers were invited to pick up their volunteer kit recently (vest, trail map and password for reporting) and to return their application form completed. Each volunteer enrolling in the program is agreeing to walk their trail on a bi-weekly basis and to report any problems encountered via a web-based form available to volunteers.
This year, France will cumulate both roles, that is overall responsibility of the program as well as coordination with the NCC. As program coordinator, France will receive reports submitted by volunteers after each trail visit and will ensure that any problems requiring attention will be transmitted to the NCC for corrective action.
