We’re seeking volunteers to help restore the Pochuck Boardwalk, arguably the most famous stretch of the Appalachian Trail in New Jersey, located in Wawayanda State Park. This involves tearing up the old wood and putting fresh lumber down, ensuring hikers can appreciate the beautiful area for years to come.
Your help is needed to get this project done! There’s lots to do, and every set of willing hands is welcome. Most of the work involves prying up old boards and drilling new ones into place – while some experience with tools is helpful, experienced State Park staff and Trail Conference volunteers will always be on site to help train new people. The most important thing needed is energy and a strong work ethic!
If you’re interested in helping, please send an email titled “Pochuck Help” to [email protected] with the following information: your name, phone number, and days of the week you’re interested in helping. We’ll pass the information onto a State Park employee who will get in touch.
Hope to see you out there!
