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.
We need more than volunteers, however. We need leaders who are able to organize cleanups and work with local municipalities. To help develop these leaders, we’ve arranged a full day of training at the Ice House on Sand Island in Bethlehem on May 17, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
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.
