Volunteer With Fort Wayne Trails

Volunteers are a crucial part of our organization and one of the most fun ways you can help support the trails! We participate in a wide variety of events every year, ranging from setting up informational booths at different fairs and expos, to helping with races. This year, we’re striving to make volunteering easier and more rewarding for you.

If you are interested in volunteer opportunities please contact us at [email protected], or visit the link below. You’ll be added to our volunteer list, and we’ll email you information about upcoming events. Thank you!

Fairs & Expos

We participate in a number of fairs and expos every year that are typically related to health, wellness, or the environment. The most common thing we do is run information booths, providing attendees with information and answering their questions about the trails. These are a great opportunity to share your love of the trails with the community and attend some really cool events!

On the Trails

We plan to be out on the trails this year, and would love assistance with meeting trail users, placing signs near the trails about events and activities, and some clean-up projects at trail heads. If you want to help out and are able and willing to lift up to 25 lbs, sweat a little, and do something physically active, we’ll have opportunities for you. Check back here for events as we schedule them.

Our Events

We put on a number of events every year, ranging from celebratory events to races. Our races require the largest number of volunteers, and truly depend on willing volunteers in order for them to be a success. These are also some of the most fun events to volunteer at and a great way to support Fort Wayne Trails!


Fort Wayne Trails is very excited to be the new home for the wonderful Adopt-A-Greenway program! The program will slowly be expanding from just the City of Fort Wayne to all of Allen County, which is becoming more and more crucial as the trail network continues to grow. This program has begun transitioning from the City of Fort Wayne’s Greenways and Trails Department and we are reaching out to the existing groups and will soon open up new sections for adoption. Stay tuned for updates!
