The mission of the Alaska Trail Stewards Program is to provide volunteer-based trail maintenance services to public land managers and others who have responsibility for safely and sustainably maintaining trails throughout Alaska. Alaska Trail Stewards (ATS) began in the fall of 2015 with just one event for National Public Lands Day. Since then, ATS has completed 73 trail projects, built and maintained 167,968 feet of trail, and engaged over 500 volunteers who have donated $176,260 of labor. By focusing on volunteer recruitment, training, and retention, ATS has consistently shown land managers the value of volunteers and what they can bring to trails.

The Alaska Trails Initiative is a coalition of trails organizations from around the state collaborating with leaders in government, business, the health industry, and the non-profit sector to invest more in the trails we love. People and communities across Alaska recognize that outdoor recreation supports health, contributes to a high quality of life and—perhaps most importantly— drives spending that supports business, creates jobs and generates tax revenue that pays for schools and other public services. Investing in outdoor infrastructure attracts employers, residents, retirees, and skilled workforce, ensuring those communities thrive economically and socially. More than one job in ten in Alaska is tied to tourism and outdoor recreation spending. Smart investments could further grow this dynamic sector; good planning can make sure we grow while maintaining the quality of our natural settings and communities.
