We need your help!
HNWTA needs trail monitors!
Specifically we need someone for the Mainland North Trail between Parkland and Langbrae, and in general, more monitors for all our other trails. The job demands a monthly trail inspection that takes between 30 to 60 minutes. The first time, you and the coordinator of the trail monitoring program will walk the trail together so that you will learn what is required to complete a trail inspection. It is valuable work that ensures sustainability of our beautiful trails. If this is something you think you would enjoy doing, contact us!
We need a new Treasurer!
We need a volunteer to look after our finances! Previous experience an asset, but not required. The departing treasurer will train you, and we have a strong board to support you.
About us: We have an annual budget of about $5,000 per year which is spent on building supplies and office expenses.
- Prepare and present monthly and annual reports.
- Pay annual and monthly bills (insurances, membership fees, storage unit).
- Reimburse board members for trails-related purchase.
- Time committement, about 2-3 hours / week (variable)
