The Trail Conference is looking for members and volunteers to research grant opportunities for the Trail Conference’s diverse range of work. After a brief training at our Headquarters in Mahwah, NJ, you will be ready to start conducting online research of grant opportunities. Grants support our efforts working on trails, saving land, controlling invasives species, providing environmental stewardship and more. By researching corporation and foundations, the goal of the Grant Researcher is to identify and evaluate potential funders for our programs.
