Managing a Successful and Sustainable Volunteer Program
Tools to engage and retain volunteers.
Presenter: Ann Baker Easley, Executive Director, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado
Explore successful and essential tools and techniques to effectively equip your organization to effectively engage and retain volunteers. Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado, a nationally recognized outdoor stewardship organization, will showcase its "CO Outdoors Toolkit: Technical Assistance Guide for Advancing Outdoor Stewardship," a comprehensive guide for organizations who engage volunteers in partnership with land management agencies for on- the-ground stewardship work.
This manual was created to accompany the Crew Leader training program developed by the Ozark Trail Association (OTA). It serves as an aid to volunteer Crew Leaders working with other volunteers to build and maintain single-track natural surface trails in the Ozarks region of Missouri. This manual is designed to serve as a baseline for trail construction and maintenance and as an introduction to leading small groups of volunteers on natural surface trail construction and maintenance events.
The Crew Leader Handbook is designed to provide information for Crew Leaders organizing and overseeing projects on the North Country National Scenic Trail. This Handbook is intended as a compliment to the in-person North Country Trail Association Crew Leader training program, which is available to all volunteers looking to expand their skills sets and gain new leadership skills.
Everything you need to know about the positive impact of trails on health, environment, economics, and more.
