    Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation is looking for volunteer trail stewards. 

    The monsoon rains have stimulated a lot of vegetation growth, said Mark Flint, NRPR program specialist. Volunteers will assess the trails they have been assigned to monitor two or three times a year and do minor maintenance. NRPR will supply tools.
    Trail stewards
    Trail stewards can assist on their own time instead of having to coordinate with one of the trail programs. The work consists mainly of assessing trails, cleaning drainage areas and vegetation control. 

    “When you do the work is up to you, but we do need the assessments done now -- in late summer/early fall and in late spring,” Flint explained.

    Currently, NRPR could use one more steward at Sweetwater Preserve, and several in Tucson Mountain Park and for the Robles Pass trails. New "job" openings will become available when the Enchanted Hills and Painted Hills trail systems are completed.

    To volunteer, call 520-724-5000 and ask for Mark Flint with the Trail Stewards Program
