It’s no secret that our trails and forest are getting more use than ever before. Recreation in Summit County is on the rise and our organization’s mission is increasingly important to both our community and visitors. Thankfully, FDRD was able to accomplish more than ever before during our field work season in 2021! We accredit that to our amazing crew of volunteers. Not only are we still seeing the same folks that have been with us for 10+ years, but we’ve also seen an uptick in new volunteers joining in on the fun. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization and we are so grateful for every single one of them! If you volunteered with us this summer, whether it was for a trail maintenance or forest restoration project, fundraising event, or leading an educational hike or presentation; please give yourself and pat on the back. All of the below accomplishments would not have been possible without you! A great deal of our volunteers participate through our partnerships with many local businesses and organizations. We’d also like to give a shoutout to our incredible partners from our 2021 season!
