Trail Guide Coordinator Needed

Community Trail Guide

Sustain Foundation has published the first comprehensive mapping of the natural surface trails in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. These important natural resources are unknown to the community at large.  In response, members of the organization used GPS/GIS to walk to trails, researched and designed 12 trifold brochures about the 12 main trails in the area and linked them all on general map of Chapel Hill/Carrboro. There are over 25,000 brochures in print and they are currently for sale at several businesses and at UNC Student Stores. However, Sustain Foundation needs help in accomplishing our mission of providing these trail guides to the community so that people are introduced to these beautiful trails and begin utilizing them.

Position: Sustain Foundation is looking for volunteers who genuinely appreciate running in nature or being active in the environment more generally to promote the Community Trail Guide. We are building a Task Force of volunteers to attend events and lead creative efforts in which awareness and sales of the Trail Guide are increased. In addition, Sustain Foundation hopes to have a weekly guided hike and/or run of each of the 12 trails over a 12 week period to students or community members. This volunteer opportunity would be a great way to serve the community by making information about the vast, beautiful natural areas and trail network known to all who seek to trail run, hike or connect with nature. Also, volunteers would be able to network with businesses, non-profits and students/community members with similiar interests in active living and promoting natural spaces. Positions could vary from a structured weekly engagement with the community such as leading a walk/run on a trail to consideration leadership and creativity in event planning or fundraising for the Sustain Foundation and for the team through selling the guides on commission and splitting the revenues. Semester commitment of 3 hours per week. Visit our website: to learn more and contact if interested.
