For over 15 years our volunteers have helped our participants, students, and audiences experience arts in nature. There is so much work that goes into creating the Trails & Vistas experience and we can’t do it without your help.

Our trails guides are an integral part of the Trails & Vistas experience. They are the guides that circumnavigate our trail system on the mountain and along historic downtown in Truckee. They are the leader of a tribe of participants and the storytellers.
Each of our events requires a lot of customer service. From check-in at the Art Hikes, to ushering audience members at the World Concert, to herding groups together for the Historical Haunted Tour. Trails & Vistas can use your support.
Our artists need your support. Our art sites along the 2 mile trail often require a lot of hiking and carrying a harp or drum or artwork and can use a helping hand. Consider being an Artist Assistant for the Art Hikes, and the Dreaming Tree Field Trips.
