Walks + Hikes: reasons to join the wait list

Mar 11, 2019
It's a popular time of year to register for a Land Trust Walk or Hike! But don't despair when you see a wait list, here are three reasons why it's worth your while to join the wait list.


Spring sets off a flurry of activity in our high desert. Birds are busy nesting, bright wildflowers open to the sun, and we all scramble to get outside to enjoy the longer, warmer days.

It's also a popular time of year to join the Land Trust on a Walk or Hike! Unfortunately, this means many of our hikes fill up fast. But don't despair when you see "add me to the wait list." Here are three reasons why it is worth your time to join the wait list: 

  1. We often get cancellations. When we get cancellations, we call the wait list! Many times, we call the entire wait list and everyone gets a chance to attend! Although cancellations are hard to plan for, it's always worth putting your name on the wait list. We work hard to notify folks on the wait list as soon as we hear about an opening; that way you can have plenty of notice before the hike.

  2. We sometimes send special invitations to folks on a wait list. If you're on the wait list for a hike, you might get the first shot at registering for a another hike on a similar topic or at the same location. 

  3. Wait lists help us understand the demand for a hike. If the list is long, we often schedule a second hike to accommodate more folks. As we plan Walks + Hikes for coming years, we often look at the length of wait list to gauge community interest and work to fill those needs with our programming.


Thanks so much for your interest in our events. We hope to see you on a Walk + Hike this spring!
