Nothing gets done unless somebody does it. KNA is an all-volunteer organization. every aspect, from acquisitions and grant writing to this website and the newsletter to trail building and maintenance to organizing outings to hosting to being a cabin Maid, is done by volunteers. when you volunteer, you get a real sense of ownership. here’s how you can contribute:
