Mammoth Lakes Recreation

Adopt-A-Trail Sponsors and Stewards

Posted: September 21, 2020
Location: Mammoth Lakes, CA and the greater Mono County, CA area.
Time Commitment: TBD


This program works to ensure that our local trails, lakes and trailheads remain well-kept, safe and enjoyable. This program provides an opportunity to support our recreational resources through sponsorship, i.e. “adoption” and/or volunteer stewardship. Your financial support or volunteer commitment will help ensure that our local trails, trailheads and lakes remain safe, fun, and well-maintained for years to come!

Adopt-A-Trail is open to everyone, including: businesses, organizations, clubs, groups, families, and individuals. Volunteer stewardship requires a minimum commitment of 20 volunteer hours and trails are adopted through a $1,500.00 tax-deductible donation to support trail maintenance efforts. It is hoped that each facility will be adopted as well as have volunteers to maximize engagement, stewardship and sustainability. Commitments are renewed annually and multi-year commitments are encouraged!

Volunteer Stewards will perform tasks that include litter and pet waste removal, light trail maintenance and reporting of any maintenance issues. Volunteer Stewards will NOT act as a “Trail Cop” or perform heavy trail maintenance. Each business, organization, club, group, family, or individual will designate a Group Leader to be the point of contact with the TOML Trails Manager to organize the work parties, and communicate any needs, issues, or concerns related to their adopted facility.

Volunteers and Adoptees will receive recognition on mammothtrails.org; mammothlakesrecreation.org and on the MLTS and MLR social media channels.
