What are the responsibilities of a Bikeway Patrol Volunteer?
Members of the Blackstone River Bikeway Patrol act as trail ambassadors for the Blackstone River Bikeway. We are always interested in recruiting volunteers for our Volunteer Bikeway Patrol. Maybe you are already a VIP and want to stretch your wings or legs, maybe you know a young person that is looking to do community service hours. It's a great way to get involved in your community, make great friends, and learn about the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor.
Are you or someone you know interested in joining our group, or maybe just volunteering to help host one of our scheduled events?
