Boone County Conservation District Trail Safety Watch Program
From press release
The Boone County Conservation District is creating a Trail Safety Watch Program and is looking for volunteers to join their first Patrol Crew.
The purpose of the Safety Watch Program is to provide safe and pleasant visits to Boone County Conservation District sites.
Working in pairs, volunteers will bike or walk the trails and alert Boone County Conservation District staff to any conditions that may be unsafe.
The Boone County Sheriff’s Department and the Belvidere Police Department will work with volunteer members of the trail safety group.
An informational meeting will be at 6:30 p.m., July 7, at the Roger D. Gustafson Nature Center, 603 N. Appleton Road, Belvidere. This meeting will provide information about the program, and volunteers can sign up at the meeting. Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age, physically able to travel the trails, and able to pass a background check.
For more information, contact Bev Kalas, volunteer/events coordinator, at Boone County Conservation District, at (815) 597-1097 or (815) 547-7935.
