Save to Favorites

South Mountain Conservancy

WO Lenape Extension, Trail Work
West Orange Lenape Trail Extension, Nov. 2015

Trail Work Crew
Sunday December 6th, 9AM-Noon


Location: Meet at the parking area for Old Short Hill Park (off 274 Old Short Hills road, which is the entrance to Greenwood Gardens)

We will be continuing work on the creation of a new trail running parallel to Brookside Drive to be called the Dogwood Hill trail. We will begin the Southern extension towards Painter's Point.

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 info@somocon.org, or call Dennis Percher, 973-868-6994.

The Conservancy depends entirely on volunteers to achieve its mission of preserving, enhancing, and promoting the Reservation. Our volunteers come from all walks of life, and are of all ages, skills and abilities. What we share in common is an appreciation for the treasure of the Reservation, and a willingness to insure it's healthy survival.
