wcsta volunteers

Our club depends on the efforts of volunteers to open and maintains 275 km of trails in West Carleton and Mississippi Mills, each year.  Of course, there is the obvious work, clearing and brushing,  to keep the trails open.  But, there are also other ways you can help. 

Fundraising is an ongoing activity, to offset costs not covered by trail permits, and you will be aware that we are working towards adding the worlds longest snowmobile bridge to our system.   We also can use help with co-ordinating events such as the Carp fair, landowner appreciation and social events.

So whether maintaining trails is your thing, or you can afford a couple of hours to help organize, or help run an event, we’d love to hear from you. Please add your name to the growing list of volunteers for the West Carleton Trails Association. Volunteering with your local club is a great way to meet and socialize with other sledders and will help make our trails better than ever!

And Students, time you spend volunteering for the club can count towards your high school volunteer hours.

You can also watch for any volunteer events mentioned on this site or learn about volunteer opportunities at our monthly meetings or contact any board member or the volunteer coordinator at volunteer@wcstai.com
