Join a Trail Crew-Learn Trail Building! Build a Legacy in Our Parks
3 people are interested
Our specialty is in the art of stonework. We provide four training sessions focusing on learning how to use basic trail tools as well as stone splitting and shaping, stone setting and rigging to those interested in joining our crew. All four sessions are necessary to join the crew. A total commitment of 10 days a season is part of our general Crew expectations. Seasons run from April-Nov. We work about 1 weekend a month.
Ever want to join a trail crew? Are you looking for a way to directly support our parks with hard work and creativity? We proudly open crew membership to individuals able to make the commitment to learn the skills essential to the work we do to create sustainable access in the parks we love. We offer training in the craft of stonework for trail building to those interested in joining our trail crew which is usually based in the Hudson Valley of New York.
Once trained in the craft you will be amazed at what you and the rest of your fellow crew members can build. What we leave behind is a legacy that will be enjoyed by the public for centuries to come; we hope that you will join us on this journey.To learn more about our organization and mission please be sure to visit our profile on this site or go to our website at www.jollyrovers.org.
