Trail Run
Location
Ned Smith Center for Nature and Art
176 Water Company Road
Millersburg, PA 17061
Description

In partnership with Tröegs Independent Brewing, the Rugged Trail Run is one of our largest fundraising events each year, bringing hundreds of runners to the Ned Smith Center for an evening full of rugged running, delicious brews, music and fellowship. The money raised at this event goes into maintaining our trail system and managing our forest land - all of which is open to the public 24/7! 

Volunteers are needed for multiple positions, including helping with parking, stuffing runner bags, runner check-in, manning the water stations along our two race routes, encouraging our runners along the way, and more! If you're interested in volunteer, please sign up and a member of our Rugged Trail Run Committee will reach out to discuss how you can be involved!

Lands and Trails
Description
In addition to regular outside work, occasional larger projects need a lot of helping hands! Our Lands and Trails volunteers do everything from trimming flower beds, filling bird feeders, and raking leaves to cutting down trees, light construction, invasive species control, and maintaining our 9+ miles of hiking trails. Our staff also occasionally looks to the Lands and Trails committee for input on small-scale projects and the management of Ned Smith Center lands. Volunteers of all skill levels are welcome. Experience with tools and outdoor work is appreciated, but not necessary.
