The D&L Trail Tenders will partner with the Old Freemansburg Association to prepare the 2.5 acre Freemansburg Canal Education Center for three weeks of student field trips. Each fall over 1,000 Bethlehem Area School District fourth-graders visit the site to learn history, science, and art related to local canal history. Volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks including:

  • cutting grass
  • cleaning out trash from the canal
  • improving the trail and walking path
  • erecting fencing and tents

Getting the site ready is a big job so please RSVP below and join the fun!
