Do Something. Change Everything.
At Trailnet, we accomplish our work through the help of many dedicated volunteers and others interested in promoting bicycle and pedestrian activities throughout the bi-state St. Louis area. You can become part of this vital work to enhance our community – for the benefit of all of us who live, work and play here – by becoming a Trailnet volunteer or answering the call to one of our advocacy alerts. In the last two-year period, our volunteers logged over 3000 hours of service. Volunteers provide a variety of services such as:
• Bicycle Fun Club (BFC) Rides and Events: great volunteers assist before each ride by helping staff set up tables and tents, sell tickets, work registration, sell memberships, hand out maps and refreshments, and answer general questions, and clean up. BFC volunteers ride free at the close of registration AND receive a free ride voucher for a regularly priced BFC ride of their choice!
• Office rescue: mailings, filing, data entry, book keeping
• Outreach and Advocacy: phone calls, letter writing, and other activities promoting the mission of Trailnet
• Special events: Eagle Days, Trivia Night, Bridge Bash, Livable St. Louis Conference, etc.
• Professional skills: photography, videography, IT
If you would like to help in any of these areas, call Carol at 314-436-1324 x103 or e-mail email@example.com.
Volunteer two hours to help make our region more bicycle and pedestrian friendly—you could win an iPad!
Trailnet, supported by Great Rivers Greenway, is participating in the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project for the second year in a row. Bicycle & pedestrian counts are a fun way meet your neighbors while helping the region support active transportation projects. This is an exciting year because after the September counts, we will be able to show changes in bicycling and pedestrian activity. This data helps drive infrastructure projects and show the growth in active transportation in the St. Louis region.
We are looking for volunteers to count bikers and pedestrians at various locations around St. Louis region. We ask that volunteers commit to counting from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at one location on September 10 or September 11, 2013. All volunteers will be entered into a drawing for a FREE IPAD—if you volunteer for both days, your name will be entered twice. Click here to sign up for times.
After you register for a count location, we will send a follow up email with instructions and a map, as a PDF, to print at home and use for your count. If you do not have access to a printer please contact Meredith Klekotka at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call at 314.436.1324 ext.112.
