Long time volunteer and Scouter Monty McNeill is taking Eagle Scout project opportunities to the next level by providing a single contact point for Park-related projects. Monty and his team have created a complete list of opportunities for Scouts to consider and the Friends of Pocahontas are backing him up with funds for materials and equipment to help Scouts be at their best.
Already we've had Scouts work on trail features, build benches, add bike racks, design information kiosks and more!
If you have an Eagle Scout who is interested in one or more of these projects, please contact us here.
Here's the list:
Our dedicated volunteers have assisted in building and maintaining many miles of new mountain bike trail at Pocahontas State Park, including several trails purpose-built for use by handcyclists.
You can leave your mark by volunteering your time, by organizing your company or service group to volunteer for a day, or by sponsoring trail construction by donating directly to the Richmond Regional Ride Center.
To sign up and volunteer please visit our meetup site.
Night mountain biking returns to Pocahontas starting on October 5th 2015. To ride, you'll need to display a signed permit for each rider and vehicle. We suggest filling one out and putting it in your glovebox so you always have one with you. You must be finished and returned to the parking lot no later than 9:00 pm. More Info.
The permit you will need for night rides can be downloaded below:
