Adopt-An-Area

Are you looking for a service project for your office or group? Chugach State Park has a program for you.  We will work to match you up with an area that you can “adopt”. This could be a trailhead, wayside, or overlook. We can find the perfect fit for you and your size of group. This program requires a minimum of two visits a year and more is encouraged. We also can provide tools if needed.


You can help by picking up litter, doing light maintenance and reporting vandalism. A sign is posted at  the area recognizing your organization. 

For more information contact Chugach State Park.

Adopt-A-Trail is a program in which volunteers provide care and maintenance within our 280 miles of trails.  Adopt-A-Trail is a team effort between volunteers and Chugach State Park to enhance the quality of our extensive trail system.  This program requires a minimum of two visits a year and more is encouraged. We also can provide tools if needed.

You can help by picking up litter, doing light trail maintenance and reporting vandalism. A sign is posted on that trail section recognizing your organization.
