Volunteer Trail Ranger Program

If you plan to use The Colony's trail system on a regular basis, and have an interest in helping the community, we need you! The Colony Parks and Recreation Department is currently accepting applications to attend an orientation and training session for volunteer Trail Rangers.


Trail Rangers will be required to pass a background check and attend a 5 hour training and orientation class. After completing the class, they will be expected to help us monitor the trails for maintenance issues and inappropriate or illegal activity. Rangers will be trained on trail use etiquette and safety procedures, as well as wildlife and habitat identification, and will be expected to provide other trail users with information and assistance as needed. Additionally, Trail Rangers will be asked to assist with picking up trash along the trails, and help with scheduled trail maintenance work days throughout the year.

Becoming a Trail Ranger

Upon graduating from Trail Ranger orientation and training, each participant will receive a water bottle and a volunteer Trail Ranger t-shirt to proudly wear while using the trails. If you are interested in volunteering your time for this program please join our email notification list for potential Trail Ranger volunteers. Your name will be placed on the notification list for the next class. Classes are scheduled periodically throughout the year.
