Volunteering with ORA

A great way to contribute to the ecology of the region, meet new friends and learn new skills.


ORA is a small nonprofit with a rapidly growing number of dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers. The great people who volunteer make it possible for us to build & maintain miles of shared use trails  and water access points for the community. The Coulee Region has some of the most giving people anywhere. Join the fun!

Besides building and maintaining trails; volunteers assist with communication, funding, mapping, tool maintenance, event coordination and administrative work. Volunteers are the reason that HPT is productive and successful. The Outdoor Recreation Alliance invite you to attend one or more of our volunteering opportunities. Sign up below.

Hixon Trail Maintenance
As you know, the trails are a great place to go. However, they need work from time to time. The Outdoor Recreation Alliance needs your help.  We are organizing the first 3 Mondays of each month now through August, 5:45 PM – 7:30 PM. to repair and improve the trails in Hixon.  Hixon trail maintenance is all done by volunteers, with equipment provided by ORA.  This is a good activity for groups of trail users to engage in. Trail Maintenance nights are a great way to meet new people, improve our community and have fun.
First 3 Mondays in May, June, July and August 5:30 – 7:30PM trail work, meet in Upper Hixon parking lot next to Pump track.
