Trail Crew


St. Louis County Parks needs your help! If you love the outdoors and want to improve the parks that you enjoy, come join us for one of the outdoor workdays! Meet new friends and enjoy the outdoors, while helping us to improve our trails. Come out for one day or several times a season. Everyone’s help is needed!

No experience needed, as volunteers will learn what is needed from experienced staff and Volunteer Crew Leaders. Share in a morning of improving St. Louis County Park trails by removing limbs and debris, tree trimming and general trail maintenance. We will supply instructions, tools and water.

Trail Crew on Saturdays – 9AM to 1PM

Help build new trails or extensions to existing trails or repair trails – limb removal, erosion control, tree trimming and general maintenance. We collaborate with GORC (Gateway Off-Road Cyclists) to design, build and maintain our trails---and lead all Trail Crew projects!

Honeysuckle Removal

Invasive bush honeysuckle is destroying forest understory by blocking sunlight from other species.  Contact our partner the Open Space Council to volunteer for weekend honeysuckle removal & other environment-enhancing projects; email or call 314-835-9225 for project dates & sites!


Corporate and school groups can also schedule weekday honeysuckle removal projects we tailor to fit your group’s age, size, time and location preference.  Customized projects normally run 2-3 hours; we ask most corporate & school groups to provide their own lunches if applicable, but we provide shelters for free!

To schedule a weekday Honeysuckle Removal project, email or call 314-615-8822 at least 4 weeks prior to your preferred project date.
