OPORTUNIDADES DE VOLUNTARIO  

Y DÍAS DE TRAIL

The only thing better than being on a beautiful trail is knowing you helped build and maintain it. Learn more about how to save the trails.

TRAIL DÍA 101

Los Trail Days son una forma fácil y divertida de retribuir a los senderos que todos conocemos y amamos. ¡Cada día es dirigido por un líder experimentado del equipo de senderos que puede hacer que los recién llegados apunten en la dirección correcta y recibir las instrucciones necesarias para marcar la diferencia y mantener nuestros senderos funcionando correctamente!

Lista rápida de cosas para llevar:

  • ¡Una buena actitud!

  • Un paquete pequeño con bocadillos y agua. A menos que se indique lo contrario, la mayoría de los días laborales incluirán el almuerzo.

  • Ropa adecuada para el clima, prepárese para el frío, la lluvia o el sol. Si tiene alguna duda, empaque algunas capas adicionales.

  • Guantes y botas de trabajo (o calzado resistente).

  • Complete y firme una exención de responsabilidad de WMBC, más información a continuación.

Horarios de encuentro:

  • Los días de Galbraith Trail generalmente se reúnen a las 9 a. M. En el estacionamiento de Galbraith Lane en Samish Way.

    • Los días de Larrabee Trail generalmente se reúnen a las 9:30 a. M. En el estacionamiento de Clayton Beach / Lost Lake.

    • Stewart y Lookout Mountains se encuentran a las 9:00 AM en Lake Whatcom Park (Stewart) o Lookout Mountain Preserve.

SPONSOR A TRAIL DAY

We love to partner with local businesses and appreciate their support. You can sponsor a trail day and provide lunch to the participants (~25-35 people) and in exchange we will add your logo to our website and create a designated social post highlighting your business and donation. Interested in sponsoring a trail day? Please email info@wmbcmtb.org for more details.

RIDE LEADING

Do you enjoy sharing the trails with others? Check out our options for ride leading with youth and adults on our local trails and share the magic of mountain biking with others! No experience necessary, just be comfortable riding and navigating Galbraith Mountain on your bike.

Read more about our Group Ride Volunteer Requirements here.

RIDE WITH KIDS

YOUTH TRAIL CORPS

Volunteers not only help instruct the kids in trail building, but are also great role models to mostly middle school aged kids. The participants learn great trail building skills, mountain bike riding practice, and environmental sustainability.

VAMOS OUTDOORS PROJECT

Are you a Spanish-speaking adult excited about building community through connection to the land and access to the outdoors? We are looking for ride leaders to support our weekly rides on Galbraith Mountain and the Waterfront Pump Track!

AFTER SCHOOL BIKE CLUBS

Thanks to our many volunteers, we are able to offer multiple clubs that serve more than 500 youth participants annually. These clubs include several elementary and middle school bike clubs, our Flying Squirrels girl's club, and our partnership with Vamos Outdoors Project.

 

RIDE WITH ADULTS

JOYRIDERS

Women-identifying ride leaders take small groups of womxn on no-drop rides on week day evenings and weekends. We provide ride leader training if you are interested!

TRAIL AMBASSADORS

Want to represent WMBC out on the trails greeting riders, sharing etiquette tips, and providing help where needed? Contact shannon@wmbcmtb.org if you are interested in joining this new program.
