Do you like being out on the Trail and getting your hands dirty?
The Munda Biddi Trail Foundation offers two trail maintenance opportunities:
A self-managed maintenance program where volunteers (groups and individuals) can adopt a section of the Trail.
A program for occasional larger trail maintenance projects that requires a crew of volunteers with DEC support.
Maintenance sections and projects will be regularly advertised on the Foundation website www.mundabiddi.org.au under volunteers. You can register online and nominate yourself for any volunteer roles as they arise.
"Volunteering to maintain a section of the Munda Biddi gives me added purpose to return to the forest on the weekends, get a good workout and also assist in the upkeep of this great public recreation facility". - Stewart Parkinson (MBTF Trail Maintenance Section Volunteer and Ride Guide)
