Community Works Together to Aid in Darlington’s Conservation Project

This past Saturday, 25 volunteers joined Trail Conference staff members to spend a day of service at the Darlington Schoolhouse.  This event marked the first step in building a free-standing, dry stone wall that will demarcate the perimeter of the grounds.  The group sorted native fieldstone into size order for future construction.  The fieldstone had been previously cleared from the building in preparation for the addition to the existing structure.

A special thanks to students from Ramapo College, sisters of Theta Nu Xi Multicultural Sorority, Inc., and members of the Ramapo College Trail Crew, all of whom put in many hours toward this project!

To get your group involved, or to sign up as an individual volunteer for future work projects at the site, please contact Jennifer Easterbrook: jennifer@nynjtc.org
