Volunteering & Community Service in Moss Rock Preserve
Many Thanks to Our Volunteers!!!
Moss Rock Preserve is very fortunate to have an active fan base in the form of local and sometimes not-so-local volunteers! Led by Ken Wills, the Friends of Moss Rock Preserve coordinate most of the volunteer efforts by organizing routine workdays in the park. The 'Friends' do whatever it takes to keep Moss Rock healthy, including trail construction, maintenance and marking, trail mapping, general trash collection, invasive plant removal and graffiti removal. Moss Rock would certainly be a different place today if it weren't for the efforts of Ken and the Friends. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
Other groups like the Access Fund, Southeastern Climbers Coalition, UAB Into The Streets, Mountain High Outfitters, Fresh Air Family, Hands on Birmingham, First Avenue Rocks, Birmingham Boulders, Boy and Girls Scouts of America, local churches and civic groups volunteer their time in the park. There is always work to be done so these groups and others like them are always welcome and very much appreciated in Moss Rock Preserve!
Because of its 349-acre size, Moss Rock can be a challenge to maintain. The City of Hoover greatly appreciates the efforts of all those who volunteer.
