Volunteers Needed at Bear Mountain
sam. 29 septembre à 14:30
Ever wonder how trails are built? If you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty, this hands-on look at how great trails get their start is for you! The Bear Mountain Trail Crew invites you to come out for a few hours and get a taste of what trail building's all about. We'll meet you at the top of Bear Mountain (near Perkins Tower) on the original section of the Appalachian Trail, and show you how we're working to create an awesome new trail experience in Bear Mountain State Park.
If you come out with us and are having a great time, feel free to stay and help out til the crew finishes their workday at 5:00!
Connect with nature, meet great people, and make a difference. If you are coming later than 8:30A.M., and the gate is closed at the bottom of Perkins Memorial please text Yuliya at[masked] to come get you. We usually wait at the gate for volunteers until 8:40AM the latest. The trail work goes on rain or shine! About the Crew
The Bear Mountain Trail Crew is working on the award-winning relocation and restoration effort of the Appalachian Trail in Bear Mountain State Park. This project involved building 5-foot-wide stone stairs all the way up to the top of Bear Mountain—but don't be intimidated by the scale of this project! Over the last 10 years, people of all ages and walks of life have worked together on this crew building over 1,000 stone stairs. This season, 2 of the crew members are former Appalachian Trail thru-hikers!
The crew will be at work five days a week, so there are plenty of opportunities to get involved. If you enjoy working outdoors and learning new skills, the Bear Mountain Trail Crew is eager to meet you out on the trail! The trip is led by Trail Conference's on-staff field managers and 5 Conservation Corps members. Where We Work
The crew will be working on finishing the reroute of the Appalachian Trail to the top of Bear Mountain in Bear Mountain State Park. The worksite offers breathtaking views of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline. Since the technical built of the trail is done, they are currently looking for volunteers to assist with trail closure, re-vegetation, and overall beautifying of the trail to get it ready for official opening. You will be helping with digging, planting, and moving debris. What To Bring
Wear pants and hiking boots or sneakers, 2 liters of water minimum, lunch, and good vibes. Hardhat, gloves, and safety glasses will be provided. Training
No experience necessary.
We provide onsite training each worktrip.
