Saw Mill River Audubon Trail Walkers are volunteers who commit to walk at least one trail in one of our sanctuaries on a regular basis. Trail Walkers report on trail conditions, visitors seen, work needed, and any plant or wildlife sightings. Trail Walkers help to protect and improve our sanctuaries.
We issue SMRA Trail Walker name badges to our regular Trail Walkers.
If you have recently walked in one of our sanctuaries but are not a Trail Walker, you are still welcome to use this online Trail Walker report to send us your observations.
Please do include your phone or email address so that we may contact you with any questions. (Any personal contact information that you share with us will only be used by us to contact you about your Trail Walker report.)
We have over eight miles of boundaries among our eight sanctuaries and over ten miles of trails. From time to time along our sanctuary borders, we deal with "lawn creep" as mowing or brush clearing happens nearer and nearer to a sanctuary border or, rarely, across our border. Inspecting and re-posting our boundaries is a big and ongoing effort by our sanctuary volunteers. Overall, we remain grateful for the appreciation and oversight of our sanctuaries shown by most of our 57 adjoining neighbors. Our sanctuaries increase neighorhood property values because they are permanently protected open space.
