KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Knox County Parks & Recreation Department is looking for volunteers to help make the park system a friendlier, cleaner and more inviting place to bike, run and play.

The new community-wide Trail Volunteer Program is a partnership between Knox County, the City of Knoxville, the Town of Farragut, Ijams Nature Center and Outdoor Knoxville.

Any responsible adult, of any age and ability, is welcome to take part. Volunteers should be willing to commit a few hours each month to visit their specific trail or greenway.
