The Friends of Breckenridge Trails is a program designed to provide an opportunity for locals and visitors to participate in the upkeep of the fragile habitats, open spaces and trail systems unique to the Town of Breckenridge.
Through volunteer efforts, Town open spaces, trails, historic sites and ecologically sensitive areas are maintained and restored, thereby creating fun opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts of all ages and abilities.
New COVID -19 Protocol
While we are very excited to have everyone join us this summer some aspects of our program will look a little different from years in the past.. The new protocols are to protect everyone's safety and reduce the risk and transmission of COVID-19. Here's what you can expect:
- Everyone must sign up by choosing a designated time to show up the morning of the event. There will be seven to eight spots available per time slot. Please coordinate with you friends if you would like to work with them.
- Please fill out waiver prior to the event which includes a "COVID-Pledge". This indicates you have not been around anyone infected, are not experiencing any symptoms, and do not have any pre-existing respiratory issues.
- Please meet at designated parking spot the morning of the project. We are not meeting Recreation Center and will not be carpooling.
- Bring a comfortable fitting face mask, pair of work gloves, and hand sanitizer
- We will maintain 6-feet of physical distancing throughout the event.
