I Love My Park Day

Saturday, May 6, 2017 10:00 AM - 04:00 PM

PROJECT #1
Volunteers will be repairing a section of the Millbrook Mountain Footpath. Our intention is to make the trail safer for all users, while preserving its rugged nature. Volunteers will begin at the southern end of Lake Minnewaska, where volunteers will hike to the work areas on this footpath. Trail work projects may include clipping overgrown vegetation, brushing in widened trails, filling in low areas using crushed rock, creating stepping stones, building water bars and more. Some tasks will be physically demanding and may involve lifting and bending as well as using hand tools, such as loppers, shovels, rock bars and sledge hammers. This volunteer opportunity is appropriate for adults and children who are at least twelve years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Meeting Location: Lake Minnewaska.

PROJECT #2
Volunteers will enhance sections of the Blueberry Run Footpath by clipping back overgrown vegetation along the sides of the trail with hand clippers. Starting at the intersection of Blueberry Run Footpath and Upper Awosting Carriage Road, volunteers will hike a half mile of this footpath, clipping back vegetation as needed. This volunteer opportunity is appropriate for adults and children who are at least seven years old, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18.
