Morris County Conservation Corps Trail Crew
Varies with work trip. Please see upcoming events for more details.
About the Crew
The Morris County Crew constructs new trails and rehabilitates eroded and damaged trails at various locations in Morris County. This year, a major part of the work will involve a reroute of a popular trail in Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area.
If you enjoy working outdoors and want to learn more about how sustainable trails are built, the Morris County Crew wants to meet you. The team will be hard at work each weekend, so there are plenty of opportunities for you to get out there and have some fun on the trail with us!
Work trips are led by Trail Conference's on-staff field manager and Conservation Corps members. The projects involves a variety of tasks, such as:
- Quarrying stone
- Creating crushed stone (with mash and sledge hammers)
- Building crib walls
- Setting rock steps
- Reestablishing vegetation
Where We Work
The Morris County Crew works at various parks in Morris County. This year, the crew will focus on projects at Lewis Morris County Park and Pyramid Mountain Natural Historic Area.
No experience is necessary and beginners are encouraged to join us! We provide on-site training each worktrip.
