Ramapo Earth Crew

Ramapo Earth Crew logo and volunteers.

 

Crew Leader: Patrick Suddeth

 

If you're new to trailbuilding and want to get your hands dirty for the first time, this is the crew for you! Everyone is welcome to join in on this crew's trips at any time, and we enourage beginners and long-time volunteers alike to join us.

The Ramapo Earth Crew is the result of melding the NYNJTC Ramapo Trail Crew with the MEVO Earth Crew. MEVO (Mahwah Environmental Volunteers Organization) is a fellow local volunteer organization with an emphasis on environmental work and a history of working alongside the Trail Conference.

With a core of committed volunteer interns supplemented by any volunteers who want to join in, the Ramapo Earth crew aims to tackle a wide variety of projects in Northeastern New Jersey and beyond.
