Metro Trail Crew

The Trail Conference trail crews are made up of volunteers dedicated to the construction and rehabilitation of foot trails in the Metro area. Volunteers must become members of the Conference to participate in these projects. One time "guest" participation is allowed.

If you would like to volunteer for any of our work projects please call the leader for information including time and place of meeting.

There is work for every level of interest. We offer on-the-job training with experienced leaders. Parking, car pooling and mass transit is available. All trips start at 9am and will run untill about 2pm. Training, tools and gloves will be furnished. Wear sturdy shoes, bring refreshment for the work trips. We serve parks from Pelham Park in the Bronx, to the Staten Island Greenbelt.
