Licking Park District Launches Adopt-A-Trail/Park Program

GRANVILLE, OHIO (March 12, 2021) The Adopt-A-Trail program was developed by the Licking Park District to promote environmental stewardship by bringing community members and organizations together to protect and maintain the natural beauty of our trails and parks.

Trail Adopters assist the Licking Park District by helping to maintain safe and well-groomed trails and parks, and by reporting conditions and hazards. Individual and Group Adopters choose their segment of trail or park and commit to a monthly visit for litter removal, clearing debris and fallen limbs, trimming vegetation, and reporting trail/park conditions and hazards. Adopters report service hours to the Volunteer Program Coordinator.

Volunteers are our eyes and ears in our 12 properties, 45 miles of paved trails and 26 miles of natural surface trails. We rely on the dedication and hard work of volunteers to help us keep our trails and parks well maintained and safe for everyone to enjoy.
