The Fall 2023 Trail Volunteer Training will be held at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center (8844 Paint Mill Rd, Slatington, PA 18080) on Saturday August 26th from 9:30AM to 12:30PM.
Join us at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center for a combined D&L Trail Patrol and Adopt-A-Section of D&L Trail volunteer training. The morning will include both informative and interactive sessions for prospective volunteers to learn about both programs, time commitments and responsibilities, and receive the tools needed to complete the program objectives. There will be two “mobile” activities along the D&L Trail to test the skills you learned during the presentation portion of the day.
This event is rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for weather as well as for walking on the trail. During the presentation portion of the training we will be seated inside of the Nature Center’s Great Hall.
Trail Patrol: Through this program, volunteers serve as the “eyes and ears” of the D&L Trail. They patrol the trail on bicycle or foot at least twice a month, April through October, in all five counties answering visitors’ questions and reporting back about fallen trees, erosion, and trail maintenance issues. This training workshop will give interested volunteers the tools they need to become Formal Trail Patrollers.

Adopt-A-Section of D&L Trail: This program is an off-shoot of the D&L Trail Tenders Program. Adopt-A-Section of D&L Trail volunteers are the “stewards” of the D&L Trail. Through this program individuals, families, organizations, businesses and schools will volunteer to support the maintenance of a section of trail, typically between two trailheads, and maintain it through the year. Activities include sign cleaning, litter removal, brush removal, and other “light” tasks. Visit the Trail Tender webpage for more information: https://delawareandlehigh.org/volunteer/trail-tenders/
