Wish you could do a little more for the trails we treasure, but not inclined to do the heavy work of trail building? Then join the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference and the West Hudson North Clippers, the region’s new roving maintenance crew. The work will be routine maintenance, only on a grander scale. A trail is shrouded by overgrowth? Extra hands are needed to clear storm damage from a trail? Call in the Clippers!
The crew will meet as needed and will be available to the four parks in our West Hudson region – Black Rock Forest Preserve , Minnewaska State Park Preserve, and Schunemunk and Storm King State Parks. You are welcome to join when, where, and how often you like. No experience is necessary; training will be provided on site. New volunteers are welcome!
Come out for our inaugural trip, Saturday, September 6, 2014, from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm. We’ll meet at the Jenny Lane parking area on Route 44/55, Gardiner, 1.25 miles past the Minnewaska State Park Preserve main entrance. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring gloves, water, and lunch. Afterwards, join us at Pasquale’s Pizza in Gardiner, to learn more about the Trail Conference and the Clippers, and of course, for camaraderie and refreshment!
