Greenway Rangers

Are you a frequent trail user with an interest in promoting safe and enjoyable trail experiences? Learn more about becoming a Greenway Ranger!

Volunteer Rangers are a vital link to the smooth operation of the Fort Wayne Area Trails network - they act as the eyes and ears for the trails and the staff that manages them! Each Ranger regularly checks a 1/2 mile to 1 mile section of the trail. He or she checks this section at least once per week from April through October. Rangers look for problems with illegal dumping, graffiti, litter, flood control concerns, safety concerns, etc. 

The Ranger reports any maintenance and safety concerns to the Program Manager for Greenways and Trails. Volunteers have to undergo an application process that includes a background check. The candidates also receive training about the trail network, safety concerns to keep an eye out for and general ranger duties.  Finally, the Ranger is given a Greenway Ranger safety vest, access to trash bags, gloves and trail brochures. In order to volunteer as a Greenway Ranger, you must be 18 years old.
