Volunteers help clean the trails that are used for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer. The club appreciates volunteers. Cleanup days will last 3-4 hours with walking and ATV riding, picking up sticks and more.

The club asks participants to bring any of the following equipment and supplies: personal drinking water, chain saws, bow saws, brush trimmers, loppers, work gloves, insect repellent, ATVs, pickups, trailers and any other tools that may aid in the trail cleanup.

Questions may be directed to members depending on which trail volunteers are inquiring about.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
