Volunteering Opportunities

“The smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intention.”
~Oscar Wilde

We would like to invite anyone who wants to help make a difference in their mountain bike community.  Without volunteers we would not have the trails we love to ride. 

We want you!  Get Involved:

Trail Crews

Well if you like getting dirty, and know your way around gardening tools, and want to get to know your trails from a different perspective, then this is for you.  It also gives you a glimpse into how decisions are implemented trail side.  You get to be apart of cool build projects, new maintenance and rework projects, and so much more.

Action Committee Members

The Action Committee is perfect for those who want to get involved with advocacy, helping strengthen the community through mountain biking, and learn all about what it takes to keep the gears running smooth.  Also, you get to work on cool projects like new trails systems, events, fundraising, leadership and so much more.

Grant Writers

Because funding is out there, and in order to expand trail access, money is needed to do so.  Trails are not free.  This is perfect for those who are have attention to detail and do not mind writing a motivating appeal.  Give us your grants, and we will do wonderful things.

We need some folks to help out in creating new, fun routes, for the community to tackle in our virtual challenge series.  This is perfect for those who love to stay out of the political scene, but want to get involved with inspiring adventure.

If you have a love affair with Boyette, this is perfect for you.  Use all that passion to get involved and help the trail crew shape the future of the preserve.  Right now we have the opportunity to build 2.5 miles of new trail.  Don't be simple minded.  Bring your ideas to the table with a willingness to own them.

Swamp Board of Director Meetings

We have been saying it forever.  Posting date, times, links, telling you all to patch in, be apart of the larger discussions.  Rarely do we see folks from the community chiming in, bringing great, new ideas to the table.  What we do see, is a whole lot of griping sometimes with little motivation to make a difference.  This is perfect for those who are truly interested in being involved with the decisions that are made that affect the entire community. 

Meetings are held every other first Monday of the month with the exception of this next meeting which will be March 1, 2021.  From 6:30pm-9:30PM
