Volunteer  Spotlight: Joe Forish

Meet Joe and the Clean Trails Team

We all want to keep our outdoors looking great!

Clean Trails is an  all-volunteer organization that aims to increase community involvement  through education and action.  Our team consists of many  talented people, all dedicated to contributing their skills and passions toward a grass-roots effort.

This month, we recognize Joe Forish, our strategy and fundraising expert from New York, NY. Joe grew up in the Pocono Mountains and developed an appreciation for the outdoors at a very young age. Now he works as an equity analyst in Manhattan and enjoys getting outdoors every chance he can. His personal mission is to raise awareness among fellow hikers, so that they too understand the benefits of picking up litter while out on the trail.

There are dozens of ways you can get involved too!

Please contact us to learn more.
