Guests can now earn an Annual Pass as a volunteer at SkyPark. We are looking for passionate, dedicated volunteers to be trained as Trail Marshalls and Trail Docents. This volunteer program is in conjunction with the creation of “The Making Spirits Bright Foundation”. This foundation has been created so we may further our commitment to environmental education, outdoor recreational programs, and responsible land management.
With the COVID-19 disruption we are now back to implement the volunteer programs to recruit Trail Marshalls and Meadowlands Trail Docents. These volunteers will be trained in their designated positions and will receive an Annual Pass in exchange for 60 hours of service per year. Your service, should you choose to accept it, must include two weekend days.
What is a Trail Marshall?

Trail Marshalls are also required to have excellent mountain biking and customer service skills. If your application is accepted, you will coordinate with SkyPark EMS/Security Staff during your time as a volunteer. First Aid Training/CPR/AED Training is required.
