Fall Dates (Sept 14 and Sept 21 at 6pm) are held at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center just north of Slatington along the D&L!
Join us at Lehigh Gap Nature Center for training sessions for the D&L Trail Patrol and Adopt-a-Section of D&L Trail volunteer programs in Sept. Trail Patrol will be on Sept 14 and Adopt a Section of the D&L Trail on Sept 21. The day will include both informative and interactive portions for prospective volunteers to learn about the two programs, time commitments and responsibilities, and receive the tools needed to complete program objectives. Each session will also include a “mobile” activity out on the D&L Trail to test the skills you learned in the informative session.
This event is rain or shine, so please dress appropriately for the weather, as well as for walking on the trail.
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. Visit the Trail Patrol webpage for more information: https://delawareandlehigh.org/volunteer/trail-patrol/.
Adopt-A-Section of D&L Trail: This program is an off-shoot of the D&L Trail Tenders Program. Previously, the D&L trained “Chapters” to run their own clean-up events; some groups are still active, while much of the D&L Trail needs more volunteer maintenance. Adopt-A-Section of D&L Trail will be a new program where families, organizations, and businesses will volunteer to steward a section of trail (as defined by our Interactive Map from trailhead to trailhead) and maintain it through the year. Activities will include sign cleaning, litter removal, brush removal, and other “light” tasks.
