The Hills to Sea Trail Coalition seeks a volunteer to assist with maintaining its website, as well as volunteers to steward sections of the 47-mile Hills to Sea Trail.

The steward positions involve walking a section of trail four times a year between April and October, clearing light debris and identifying areas needing more attention.

A person to freshen paint blazes also is needed.

The trail extends from Belfast to Unity; sections range from one half-mile to more than four miles.

A handsaw and/or loppers are the only tools needed, and stewards receive a one-hour orientation. Large limbs and downed trees are addressed by trail crew members with chainsaws.

To learn more about volunteer opportunities, email Buck O’Herin at [email protected].
