VOLUNTEER
WITH WMBC

The only thing better than being on a beautiful trail is knowing you helped build and maintain it. Learn more about how to save the trails.

VOLUNTEER TRAIL DAYS

Trail Days are an easy and fun way to give back to the trails that we all know and love. Each day is led by an experienced trail crew leader who can get newcomers pointed in the right direction and the necessary instruction to make a difference and keeping our trails running right!

What to Expect

  • Be ready for a half day of getting dirty and having fun!

  • Coffee, water, and lunch provided

  • Wear weather-appropriate clothing, prepare for the cold, rain, or sun - if in question, pack some extra layers

  • If possible: bring gloves and boots (or durable footwear)

  • Make sure you are a WMBC member

  • Please register for the trail day below!

 

Galbraith Trail Day Details

  • CARPOOL: meet at 9AM the Galbraith Lane Parking Lot on Samish Way in the back right corner by the horse trailer parking - you can bring your bike!

  • RIDE UP: bike up to the start of the trail being worked on and look for our WMBC tents!

Ride with Kids

YOUTH TRAIL CORPS

Volunteers not only help instruct the kids in trail building, but are also great role models to mostly middle school aged kids. The participants learn great trail building skills, mountain bike riding practice, and environmental sustainability.

VAMOS OUTDOORS PROJECT

Are you a Spanish-speaking adult excited about building community through connection to the land and access to the outdoors? We are looking for ride leaders to support our weekly rides on Galbraith Mountain and the Waterfront Pump Track!

AFTER SCHOOL BIKE CLUBS

Thanks to our many volunteers, we are able to offer multiple clubs that serve more than 500 youth participants annually. These clubs include several elementary and middle school bike clubs, our Flying Squirrels girl's club, and our partnership with Vamos Outdoors Project.

 

Ride with Adults

JOYRIDERS

Women-identifying ride leaders take small groups of womxn on no-drop rides on week day evenings and weekends. We provide ride leader training if you are interested!
