There are plenty of great volunteer organizations throughout the Daniel Boone National forest to get involved with. Volunteering is a great way to get out, get your hands dirty and help give back to the forest, all at the same time. Here are some of the great organizations you can look into.

The Sheltowee Trace Association is a non-profit association that works to achieve “the formation of a highly functional cross-state recreation trail”. They are the ones responsible for getting out there and working to preserve, promote and protect the Sheltowee Trace Trail. You can volunteer for everything from trail work to helping with organized hikes. Go check out their volunteer page to learn more!

As the name suggests, the Red River Gorge Trail Crew is the volunteer trail crew that is dedicated to  “providing access to the beautiful Red River Gorge through a well maintained trail system”. They typically have their outings on the second Saturday of every month.
