The Keuka Outlet Trail is completely supported by Volunteers.  To keep the trail beautiful and accessible, we rely on your support.  To become a volunteer, browse the options below and complete the Volunteer Application Form.  Our Volunteer Chairman will contact you directly.  Thank you for your interest!

  • Trail Maintenance: Come out on assigned work days and help on special projects that may include anything from hanging signs, to clearing a fallen tree, to helping to install a bench. You will work with and get to know other volunteers.

  • Hospitality Tables: Hand out brochures, sign up new members, and answer questions about the Trail. We have a table at seasonal festivals and community events and celebrations.

  • Photography: Take your camera along the Trail and send us your most memorable photographs. We need seasonal photographs and photos of people enjoying the Trail.

  • Brochure Distribution: Develop and update a list of businesses (contact person, address and phone number) in your area that should have Trail brochures; check with businesses to see when they need more; deliver more brochures when businesses run out.

  • Community Activities: Let us know what is happening in your community. If you know of any up-coming events that might interest our Trail users, please e-mail or call us. Alert us to chances in your community to publicize the Trail, educate people, and recruit more members and volunteers.

  • Educational Speakers: Share your enthusiasm and knowledge about the Trail. Give a presentation at a civic, fraternal or school group meeting or do a guided nature tour on the Trail. We have a booklet chock-full of information and a power point presentation with photos on the Trail.

  • Mailings: Assemble mailings to members, volunteers, legislators and others. Collate, stuff, and affix postage and labels on envelopes.

  • Merchandise Marketing and Fundraising: Lend the Trail your marketing skills. Help promote and sell our booklets and posters OR organize, promote, and execute fundraising events.

  • Newsletter: Let your writing or editing talents shine for the Trail. Help write an article or send us your anecdotes to add to our quarterly newsletter or website.

  • Research: Help us gather information about the Trail from our visitors by collecting Visitor Feedback Forms and compiling the feedback data.

We hope to hear from you soon!
