About the Program
The Adopt A Trail Program is designed to help maintain and improve trails in the Town of Oro Valley, by providing an outlet for community and interest groups to assist in trail maintenance. The Town of Oro Valley Parks and Recreation Department’s Adopt A Trail Program (AAT) was established in January 2004. It was modeled after the Town’s Adopt A Roadway program as well as successful Adopt A Trail programs throughout the United States. The program provides land stewardship, physical fitness, and instills a sense of pride and ownership for volunteers, fostering a closer connection to the community and to the environment. Trails provide a recreation outlet in Oro Valley, which is a requirement for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. They preserve open space and animal habitat, which assist in maintaining the health of the environment.
How to Participate
Interested organizations should contact the Adopt A Trail Coordinator. Interested groups may include scout groups, youth groups, special interest clubs, families, schools, and private industry groups. The Coordinator will explain and discuss the AAT Program with a responsible representative of the interested organization, emphasizing that the program requires significant physical work that must be done on a reasonably frequent basis for at least two years.
