St. Louis County Parks invites geocachers to become TRAIL WATCH VOLUNTEERS!
There are over 140 miles of trails in St. Louis County Parks and your help is needed to monitor them. As a Trail Watch Volunteer, you’ll assist Park Rangers in keeping our trails safe and enjoyable for all! Volunteers, ages 16 years and older, must attend an initial 2-hour orientation (which requires pre-registration) at which Park Rangers will teach trail etiquette and reporting procedures. Trail Watch Volunteers serve as “ambassadors” and will not be asked to intervene in potentially dangerous situations, only to report them. After the orientation, they will be issued a Trail Watch Vest and ID Badge.
