ATA Volunteerism Benefits

Volunteerism isn’t just another part of what the ATA does – it’s the driving force that powers our accomplishments. There are many rewards that come from giving back to the trail: the fun of working outside, meeting great trail people, and learning to see the trail in a whole new way. For most of us – that’s reward enough. However, the ATA wants to recognize the contribution of our hardworking volunteers.

Check out the benefits of recording volunteer hours with the ATA below – then register for one of our upcoming volunteer events!
