Our summer of celebrating and stewardship of the Border-to-Border Trail will look different this year. While we may not gather on the trail as we normally do, our work is just as important as ever.  One thing remains clear, trails are essential.  This means that your support as volunteers is essential!

We are looking forward to a time when we can safely work together at a community event or plan a group trail stewardship day to maintain our important resource.  Until then, there are still ways that you can support the Border-to-Border Trail from home. Here’s how!

Individual Trail Cleanups – socially distant stewardship!

Individual cleanups are just what they sound like: you, a trash bag, and whatever segment of the B2B means the most to you – or even at home! We all need to take care and observe public health guidelines, but the work of stewarding the B2B Trail continues.

Let’s see how much of an impact we can make!


For all individual cleanups

  • BE SAFE: follow CDC guidelines for social distancing and other hygiene.
  • Use your judgment. Don’t pick up anything that seems unsafe or unsanitary.
  • Wear gloves.
  • With limited staff and services in surrounding park areas, trash may not be emptied as normal – please bring collected trash home for disposal.
  • After you clean up, let us know how you’ve helped clean up by posting on Facebook and using the hashtag #B2BTrailStories.
  • Then do it again!

Tell us how you did!  Click here to complete this cleanup registration form (upload a picture if you have one!) and let us know how many bags of trash you collected.

Join Our New Facebook Group!

We have launched a B2B Trail Community group on Facebook and we need you to join the conversation! CLICK HERE and request to join the group to share stories and photos of your experiences on the Border-to-Border Trail.  It’s a great way to stay engaged and connected to the wider community of B2B Trail users.
