Who may take advantage of the services provided by Trailwrights? Many local conservation groups, government land management departments, recreation associations and others who are responsible for thousands of acres of New England's most beautiful land. Many of these holdings are laced with trails which do not receive the benefit of regular, essential maintenance.
That's where Trailwrights comes in. We will not take over the maintenance tasks from these groups, but we will show them whatever they need to know to protect their pathways and even help them design and construct new trails to enhance their property.
What We Do
Our work season generally runs from mid-April to mid-November.
In addition, Trailwrights presents as an educational tool, slide/lectures for groups interested in learning what is involved in all aspects of trail maintenance.
We will also prepare programs on specific subjects as requested to go along with hands-on sessions held on our workshops and on your trail systems.
There is no fee for our services. Contributions in time or money are greatly appreciated. However, we depend almost completely upon donations to fund our efforts. We also bid on a limited amount of contract work to help defray expenses.
