Trail Steward Program

Do You Want to Help Keep Our Trails Safe?_Trail Steward program flyer 100422

The Town of Mansfield’s Conservation Department is currently looking for volunteers to help with walking our major conservation areas and reporting any issues along the trails. The Trail Steward Program will promote the ongoing healthy, safe and passable trails throughout Mansfield

In October 2022, The Conservation Department conducted a Trail Steward Assessment Workshop (see video link below) will train you on how conduct a trail assessment and how to fill out the trail assessment reporting forms. You will also be trained on minor trail maintenance activities to help keep the trails clear from overgrowth and downed branches

*The use of electric/gas powered hand tools (chainsaw, sawsall, electric hedge trimmers, etc.) will not be permitted. Minors under the age of 18 should have an adult sign the waiver and accompany them.

We will be assessing the following trails systems:
