Review for PORTLAND TRAILS, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Volunteering for Portland Trails gives one a wonderful opportunity to experience a variety of outreach venues. I was able to help with 16 of the 30-some events. Meeting new people, seeing workplace settings, learning about what the Portland area has to offer, allows one to see how Portland Trails benefits all who live and visit the area. Our new map shows 31 trails that provide healthy experiences for young and old, able and handicapped, walkers/runners/cyclists. 2011 provided a dozen Discovery Trek guided walks; I throughly enjoyed the four I went on. Even through staff changes, Portland Trails didn't skip a beat.

Would you volunteer for this group again?

Definitely

Review for PORTLAND TRAILS, Portland, ME, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I moved from PA to ME 19 months ago. One of my first tasks was to get a map of trails where I could ride my bicycle and walk. I've been on 16 of the trails and love the Discovery Treks. Wellness Fairs have been my volunteer focus. They are a wonderful way to learn more about the community and share about Portland Trails at the same time. The staff are wonderful at encouraging me. I feel that I get more than I give. I thoroughly enjoy volunteering. It is a great way to support Portland Trails.
