St. Charles County, Missouri – The St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department is looking for volunteers of all ages to assist with fall and winter Trail Work Days at four County Parks in October, November and December. This is a great opportunity for those needing to fulfill community service hours; all volunteers are welcome.

Park staff and members of Gateway Off-Road Cyclists (GORC) will lead the projects and show volunteers how to build and maintain sustainable natural-surfaced trails as they assist in extending the County’s 55-mile trail system. Participants should bring a pair of gloves, sturdy boots, and safety glasses.

Volunteers are needed from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the following Saturdays in these parks:

  • Oct. 12 at Quail Ridge Park, 560 Interstate Drive in Wentzville
  • Nov. 9 at Matson Hill Park, 670 Matson Hill Road in Defiance
  • Nov. 16 at Indian Camp Creek Park, 2679 Dietrich Road in Foristell
  • Dec. 7 at Klondike Park, 4600 Highway 94 S. in Augusta

 Organizations, individuals, and groups interested in helping with Trail Work Days should pre-register on the Parks website at http://bit.ly/2019SCCMOParksRegistration and click on the event of choice or call the Parks Department at 636-949-7535. Lunch will be provided to all who lend a helping hand.
