The meetings are held at the LeisureCenter on the first Thursday of the odd numbered months.

The Friends of the Red Cedar State Trail and Hoffman Hills have been blessed by the willingness of community members and community organizations to volunteer on projects that improve both trails. This generosity has become even more important in the past few years due to State funding cuts to the Department of Natural Resources’ budget. The Friends have responded to these budget cuts by increasing their volunteer efforts. Grooming of the Red Cedar State Trail in winter is done completely by volunteers. Skiers donate to a grooming fund to help offset the grooming costs at Hoffman Hills. “A wish list of projects” is made each year to improve and keep the Red Cedar State Trail and Hoffman Hills as the treasures we locals, as well as the many visitors, enjoy. Several of the projects on the list include; eradicating invasive species, working on exhibits, gardening at the depot, repairing birdhouses, trail projects, working in the depot, being a trail ambassador, or helping with special programs such as the Candlelight Ski and National Trails Day.
If you are interested in volunteering, or have any questions about volunteering, contact any of the board members. You will be rewarded knowing you had a part in preserving and maintaining these two Dunn County treasures. The Friends of the Red Cedar State Trail and Hoffman Hills would like to thank all of you who have volunteered in the past and look forward to your help on our future wish list projects.
