New this year: You can also win a cash gift certificate! When you complete a stewardship activity and email us a description of your stewardship task, your name will be added to our monthly stewardship drawings.
After each completion, your name will be added to our monthly stewardship drawings. Stewardship activities include: describe evidence of wildlife, notice new trail work, identify plants, understand the historical significance of an area and the impact of use, read signage, discover geological features, remove litter, sign up for a work day, or offer your special skills to MSTA.
In some cases, you will notice that the name of the linked to trail is different than the name on the Trail Challenge Passport, but the link takes you to the right place. Also, miles listed are round trip or for a loop. Please use your discretion and choose the most appropriate trail for your fitness level. Have fun!
