About the Trail Keepers Program
Volunteers assist in keeping Rocklin’s parks and trails well-preserved for our whole community to enjoy!
The tasks assigned to Park & Trail Keeper volunteers would be limited to:
- Pick up trash and deposit in available garbage cans
- Identify hazards (trail wash outs, fallen trees, illegal camping, etc.) and report using the Access Rocklin app modified to include new hazards and issues
- Identify & report obvious maintenance items (broken sprinklers, signage issues etc.)
- Participate in the above activities at larger events (e.g. Quarry Park events and more)
Given that the city has many neighborhood parks, you as a volunteer may opt to identify a “Home” Park (i.e. nearest neighborhood park or closest larger park) for the activities described above.
You may also choose to support the above activities at a range of parks and/or trails as suits your situation.
