Peter Dolan

Peter Dolan, a 2010 graduate of Bucknell University and a resident of Greenwood Lake, NY, has joined the staff of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference as coordinator of our New Jersey programs. Peter  holds a degree in biology from Bucknell and brings a variety of training and skills related to outdoor recreation and education to the position. 

Peter has led college freshmen on backpacking trips on the Appalachian Trail; helped low-performing elementary-age students in California develop skills and confidence by teaching them outdoor survival skills and nature-focused lessons; was trail staff for Wilderness Inquiry in Minneapolis, MN; and was a member of Coconino Rural Envirnment Corps in Flagstaff, AZ. The son of former Trail Conference Executive Director JoAnn Dolan and husband Paul,  Peter returned "home" this past spring and summer for a season as Student Conservation Corps intern on the Sterling Forest Backcountry Trails Program.

The Trail Conference is a member-supported not-for-profit conservation organization that builds, protects, and educates the public about trails on public lands in our region, and organizes and trains volunteers for outdoor service opportunities. Since its founding in 1920, the Trail Conference network has grown to 2,000 miles of trails, 1,500 volunteers, 10,000 individual members, and 100 member organizations. Its geographic focus ranges from central New Jersey to north of the Catskill Mountains and west to the Delaware Water Gap.
