Immediately following the meeting for new participants, the general meeting for all Trail Stewards will be held from 10:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Topics to be discussed will include: Invasive Plant Management; Maintenance “How-To’s”; Updates on Trail Projects, and more.
Both meetings will be held in the Trailside Nature & Science Center located at
452 New Providence Road in Mountainside. Light refreshments will be provided.
The Adopt-A-Trail program was implemented to complement the County’s existing monthly trail maintenance program. There are approximately 26 miles of bridle trails and over 13 miles of marked hiking trails that require attention.
Interested persons and trail users who are not able to make a two-year AAT commitment are encouraged to attend one of the monthly trail work days, usually held the 1st Saturday of the month from 9:30 a.m. -12: 00 noon (except in January and February). No experience is necessary to help out! The next Saturday Trail Work date is set for April 5.
By adopting a trail or participating in the Saturday work dates, you can realize a sense of accomplishment, work out-of-doors, meet new people and learn a new skill. Pre-registration for the Orientation and General AAT meetings and Saturday Trail Work days is required. Please call (908) 527-4231 to register or obtain additional information.
