Be a part of the first Queens Parks Trails Club.   We are looking for a group of volunteers to help with maintenance and restoration projects on select hiking trails in Queens Parks.  This first meeting will be an introduction to the club and a workshop led by the New York New Jersey Trail Conference.

This workshop will provide participants with the skills necessary to properly clear, maintain and improve a hiking trail. Through field work, you will learn assessment of trail conditions, clearing, trail marking, proper use of tools and how to report any trail problems.  Be prepared to spend a few hours on the trails around the area as part of the field training.

Make sure to wear your hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and trail work; pack lunch and plenty of water; and bring work gloves.

Space is limited and registration is required for this event.
