Get Involved


It comes not only from flora and fauna, but from the users of our trail who pocket their litter, courteously loan spare tubes, politely
announce “On your left!” and keep dogs on short leashes. It comes from volunteers who help us plant trees, organize clean-ups and educate the community on the trail itself. It comes from the support of Dallas Park & Recreation, City of Dallas officials and our generous sponsors.

And it can come from you. Please help us keep Santa Fe Trail beautiful and safe through action, donation, sponsorship and volunteerism.

Did you know each trail in Dallas is responsible for its own upkeep? Be a part of connecting neighbors and maintaining and improving beautiful green space. Make a one-time donation, an on-going monthly contribution, or donate to a specific project. This is Friendship on your terms, and it’s tax deductible.

So much of what we do relies on extra hands. Help us as an individual, or inspire company teambuilding by signing up as a group. Together, we can plant trees and wildflowers, keep the trail clean and share ideas on how to do even more. Choose an event on the Events page that interests you, send us your info, and we’ll reach out with details.

Sponsorship through financial contributions is a great way to invest in your community. Sponsor a sign, a segment or a particular project. Sponsorships are customizable and tax deductible. Just let us know you are interested and we’ll be in touch.

We Friends of Santa Fe Trail are a dedicated bunch and we welcome like-minded folks who are as passionate as we are about community, nature and culture, and maintaining our special pathway that connects it all. Take a look at all the levels and let’s be friends.
