Volunteer Work Day on Saturday, April 1 – Opening Day!

Opening Day at the Gorge!  Trails open on April 1, and we need your help to make sure they’re ready for visitors. Winter takes its toll on the steps, trail edging and retaining walls that comprise the narrow and winding hiking paths.

Please join Mianus River Gorge staff and fellow volunteers for a Volunteer Work Day on Saturday, April 1. Two sessions are available: 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon and 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Come for either or bring your lunch and stay for both!

Your help is needed to … revitalize the Deer Exclosure trail … replace and install edging along sections of the trail using cedar logs secured with wood wedges and long pins … rebuild a retaining wall on the Red trail using strong locust logs and rebar … redo a series of steps on the Blue trail … and more.

Volunteer Work Day is a chance to get out-of-doors, meet new people, and contribute to a memorable experience for all MRG visitors. Bring a friend (and work gloves if you have them)!

Please contact info@mianus.org or (914) 234-3455 to sign up for the morning or afternoon session (or both). THANK YOU!

The mission of Mianus River Gorge, an independent, not-for-profit organization, is to preserve, protect and promote appreciation of the natural heritage of the Mianus River watershed through land acquisition and conservation, scientific research and public education throughout the region.
