Trail Volunteer Opportunities

The Pumpkinvine Advisory Committee has a volunteer program for interested parties to help with: 1) monitoring activities on the trail, 2) routine trail maintenance and 3) occasional work such as cleaning up storm damage and special trail enhancement projects.

Projects that volunteers have undertaken in recent years are:

  • Sealing cracks in the trail surface.
  • Trimming brush along the sides of the trail.
  • Planting and maintaining plots of flowers along the trail.
  • Clearing fence rows with trail neighbors who request new fences.

For more information about volunteering with the Elkhart County Parks Department or to receive a volunteer application - call the administrative office at 535-6458.
