We’d love to have your help to make a lasting difference in our community! The Carolina Thread Trail works in partnership with its lead agency, Catawba Lands Conservancy, to create trails and greenways, and connect people to the outdoors, natural areas and regional destinations via the Thread Trail.
We need people like you with a wide variety of skills and interests to volunteer to make our communities healthier places to work, play and explore! We’re looking for people who can help with trail construction and maintenance, community events, special event support, monitor conserved areas, invasive plant removal and more!

Trail Masters Program
Interested in helping lead volunteer efforts throughout the region?
Our Trail Masters program builds volunteer leaders who are trained in the latest sustainable trail building and maintenance techniques. Volunteer Trail Masters serve as crew leaders during our volunteer workdays, commit 40 hours of volunteer service to the Thread Trail annually for three years, and play a vital role in establishing trails throughout our communities. An option to attend the course for a fee and not volunteer for the Thread Trail is available. For more information about the program, click here.
