Objectives for the Adopt-a-Trail program are:
- To ensure the continued enjoyment of trails in Puyallup parks and open spaces
- To unite those interested in responsible land management practices through maintenance of trails and public education
- To promote public land stewardship, physical fitness, and community
Stewards who choose to adopt a trail receive training and instruction on proper trail maintenance techniques. All necessary tools and equipment will be provided. The only requirement to adopt a trail is to have a genuine concern for the well-being of our natural resources. Garden clubs, scout troops, youth groups, individuals, special interest clubs, church organizations, families, neighborhood associations, students, school organizations and private businesses are encouraged to get involved. A one-year commitment is required. Adopt-a-Trail volunteers must be at least 12 years of age.
