We are hiring!!

We are hiring!!

MRWA is hiring a trail crew to work on our single track trail network. We are working to connect the Norrawarren trails to the “Fight trails” off of the Governor’s Brook subdivision. As the trail gets longer so does the walk into the worksite. This means we get less build time per weekly volunteer build session. We’re hiring a trail crew to supplement our volunteer effort and keep the project (and trails) progressing this summer and fall. We are hiring trail building crew members and supervisors. The job descriptions and details of how to apply can be found here:
