Minnewaska: Volunteer Trail Steward Orientation

  • Minnewaska State Park Preserve (map)

Minnewaska State Park Preserve is recruiting volunteers to help protect the fragile and stunningly beautiful landscape of Minnewaska State Park Preserve. The goal of the Trail Steward Program is to mitigate the degradation of trails and lands by providing experienced trail users an opportunity to engage directly with inexperienced hikers about safe and responsible use of the trails. Stewards will be stationed on popular footpaths on weekends and holidays from Memorial Day to Thanksgiving.

Orientation session will be held and Sunday, May 19, 2019 at the Minnewaska State Park Preserve Nature Center from 9:30 am to 11:00 am. For those who are not familiar with the trails or wish to join in for fun, there will be an optional two-and-a-half-hour hike following the session. Sessions may be added in the summer and fall for those who cannot make the May date.

Interested persons can register here or by calling the Minnewaska State Park office at 845-255-0752
