Location: Meet at county maintenance area off South Orange Avenue. This is the compost area for the county. See description on the meetup.com posting.
We will be continuing work on the creation of a new trail running parallel to Brookside Drive to be called the Dogwood Hill trail.
There is plenty of space to social distance, as participants are typically at least 15 feet from each other, and further if desired.
This work is strenuous, but rewarding. For ages 15 and above. Wear solid shoes and layers; bring your own gloves. For information, contact email@example.com, or call John Verzani, 973-223-3529, or Dennis Percher, 973-868-6994.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
