Trail Maintenance Workshop

 Registration is closed for this event
Ever wonder how the trails stay open and passable? Where do those colored marks on the trees come from? Join us on "I Love My Parks Day" to take this workshop to find out about trail maintenance!

Trail Maintenance is clearing, cleaning, and blazing. Trail maintainers use small hand tools to clip and cut brush out of the trail, remove debris from drainage structures, and paint or hang the markers used for route finding also known as blazes.

This course helps you gain or brush up on the skills necessary to a Trail Conference Trail Maintainer Volunteer.  Skills include how to clip trail corridors, clean drainage structures, proper blazing techniques, and reporting trail conditions.

There will be a field component of this course, so be sure you wear your sturdy hiking boots and work gloves if you have them!

* We will be meeting at the Park Office, off of Route 202 in Yorktown Heights, NY
