This weekend: Learn to maintain a trail

It takes a lot of work to keep the 350 miles of hiking trails in the Catskill Park clear and hike-able. Do your bit by volunteering with the Catskill Conservation Corps this weekend to learn the basics of trail maintenance in the park.

The Conservation Corp is hosting a day-long workshop on Saturday at the trails around the North and South Lakes in the Greene County hamlet of Haines Falls. According to a press release, participants will:

[L]earn the basics of trail safety, what tools are needed for the job, and you'll be hiking the trail learning how maintainers clear back brush and weeds and remove fallen trees from the trail.
