Three Reasons You Should Join the Waitlist

Learn more about why it's a good idea to join the waitlist for a Land Trust outing.

Spring is a popular time of year to join the Land Trust on a Walk or Hike! This means that many of our hikes fill up fast. But don't despair when you see the "Join Waitlist" button! Here are three reasons why it is a good idea to join the waitlist: 


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

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

  3. Waitlists 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 waitlist to gauge community interest and work to fill those needs with our programming.

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