Delaware & Lehigh - Trail Tender Leaders Needed

Hi! Dennis Scholl here. I’m in charge of recruiting volunteers for the D&L Trail Tenders. The Tenders are responsible for maintaining more than 100 miles of the D&L Trail in five counties: Bucks, Northampton, Lehigh, Carbon and Luzerne. It’s an enormous area to cover, so we’ve split the region into four chapters to give people a better opportunity to work in their “own backyard.” We have active chapters in the Lehigh Valley, Northern Lehigh County, Carbon County and Lehigh Gorge State Park.

You can learn more about it by contacting our office in Easton by e-mail or telephone. E-mail inquiries should be directed to [email protected]. Or, give me a call at 610-923-3548, ext. 25. We’d love to have you spend the day with us.
