Training All Volunteers to Be Trail Builders
You've got permission to build on a section of land, and you've approved a flagged trail with the club, community, and property owner/manager.
Trail days are disaster, no-one shows up, the few locals you have have conflicting schedules.
Rather than give up, what about training the locals to build trail on their schedule, ie, by themselves if necessary.
Basically, you ask that locals not to build trail until properly trained, and that no power equipment, tree pruning, tree cutting, is permitted outside of group build days.
I've seen plenty of lone trailer builders on this forum, and although they are property trained, why not teach average Joe's the basics of trail building so then can do it by themselves.
There is still a trail contact that any problems can be relayed to, and that trail contact has the ability to reach out to all certified trail builders to make sure problems are addressed.
Any success stories or concerns of potential problems with the concept?
