Many years ago, the volunteers of the Bancroft Field Naturalist Club established the first trail system on Eagles Nest.  With the launch of the Eagles Nest – An Algonquin Story Project, many more individuals from across the community have come together to create a unique experience for visitors.  Into the future, the role of volunteers will continue to expand as existing infrastructure needs to be maintained and new trails are developed.


There are many opportunities to use your unique skills as a volunteer with the Stewards of Eagles Nest Park Inc., a not-for-profit incorporated organization tasked with caring for Eagles Nest, and developing new educational opportunities and expanding the trail system in the years to come.


We need volunteers:

  • To be Trail Monitors to walk the trails weekly to check for storm damage, need for repairs, clean-up, etc.
  • To assist with repairs and general maintenance to the infrastructure, including kiosks, boardwalks, lookout platform, etc.
  • To assist with organizing fundraising opportunities
  • To monitor the Facebook page
  • To become an active Board member offering your skills in accounting, project management, grant writing, regional economic development or trail development best practices
  • To promote Eagles Nest as a destination

…and so much more!
