Volunteer Trail Work Partners

The following businesses have supported COGGS and Twin Ports trail development and maintenance through organized volunteer build days with their employees. These opportunities are critical for COGGS, as a group of focused individuals working for a day or two can get A LOT done. It's also an excellent team building opportunity for businesses, and a great way to spend the day outdoors.
