WTA welcomes everyone who wants to lend a hand and help out on trail — whether you've had years of experience or you're brand new to tools. Find how to sign up for work parties, get details about backcountry trips and find answers to frequently asked questions.
We look forward to seeing you on trail!
Search our schedule to find a work party in your area. No experience necessary — just bring boots, gloves, and lunch.
Backcountry trips are multi-day work parties where you'll work and camp in the wilderness with your crew as you tackle a project our one-day work parties can't get to.
Try an eight-day volunteer vacation if you want your gear packed in and gourmet food provided by WTA.
For a more rugged experience, try a backcountry response team (BCRT). These range from three to eight days, and you'll hike in your own gear and food, as well as WTA-provided tools.
What to expect
Taking care of trails together
WTA has a wonderful community of crew leaders who give their time and skills to helping new volunteers learn the basics (and beyond) of trail work. Read about them, then sign up for a work party to meet them in person!
