Why Adopt?

The purpose of the Adopt a Trail Program is to increase awareness, usage, and appreciation of this trail network within the community. We hope to clean, maintain, and upgrade the existing trails in the Beaver Lodge Forest Lands. Much of the trail work that has been done is done by volunteers, we are making this an opportunity to acknowledge the work that they have done, encourage them to continue their work, and to involve more people in our trails. Trails can represent and provide many benefits to the community. Some of these are:
