Union County, NJ – Hikers along the Red Trail in Union County’s Watchung Reservation will find the going a little easier, thanks to a group of hardworking Adopt-a-Park volunteers.
Organized through Jersey Cares and the UC SHOUT (Union County Students Helping OUT) youth initiative, the 20-strong group helped to restore a chronically wet section of the trail by applying gravel to a raised “turnpike” that enables excess water to percolate through.
Any individual or group is welcome to join Adopt-a-Park/Adopt-a-Trail.
