Teatown Weekend Trail Crew

Beginners welcome. Experienced trail workers put to good use.

No previous experience is required. Tools and training are provided. Please bring water and snacks. Wear sturdy shoes and clothing for the weather of the day.

Call or email to confirm meeting location. Location varies week to week. We focus on Teatown Lake Reservation, Teatown-Kitchawan Trail, John Hand Park, Kitchawan Preserve, Briarcliff-Peekskill Trail.

Work varies by project: Installing drainage structures, repairing trail tread and boardwalks, light rock work.

Teatown Lake Reservation’s 875-acre nature preserve spans into three towns (Yorktown, Cortlandt and New Castle) located in the northwest section of Westchester County, New York.  The property provides a unique glimpse of the biological diversity and fragile ecosystem of the entire Hudson Hills and Highlands bioregion. Visitors are awed by the beauty of the preserve, which includes streams, hardwood swamps, mixed forests, meadows, hemlock forests, laurel groves and a scenic gorge. 

The Trail Crew Meets Most Saturdays.
