The trails need you...and so do we!
You help build trails for our future
North Kitsap Trails Association is served entirely by volunteers. If you are interested in improving the quantity, diversity and safety of Kitsap's non-motorized transportation and recreation we encourage you to join us by subscribing to our newsletter, volunteering or by contacting us with your ideas.
Whether you have an afternoon to help build trails, are willing to help lead a task, would like to serve on the Board of Directors or just have a few hours a month to contribute, we can use your help. We need your help to plan, build and maintain trails; to plan and organize trail events; to raise funds to support our trail systems; to write news articles, coordinate volunteers, and to support communications like our web page or Facebook, or grant writing.
