Thank you to the Saddle River Valley Lions Club for inviting the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference to discuss the adaptive reuse of the former Darlington Schoolhouse as a center for conservation service learning and a trails visitors center.
Even though the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has been leasing space in Mahwah for 10 years, many people we encounter are unfamiliar with the organization and the work we do. But when you mention the iconic Darlington Schoolhouse, almost everyone knows of the building and its historic role in Bergen County. It piques their interest further as we dive into the details of our efforts to restore and renovate the notable building into our permanent headquarters. This project is bringing together diverse interests, including people who cherish the outdoors, hiking, biking, walking, historic preservation, local history community development, and civic engagement.
We would be delighted to speak at your service club or organization in the surrounding area of the TC Headquarters to raise awareness of the Trail Conference and to support our capital campaign. Please connect with me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201.512.9348 x24
