Bog Bridge Repair on the Jenny Lane Footpath at Minnewaska
May 2 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Volunteers will be working with New York New-Jersey Trail Conference members and Park Preserve staff to repair a section of the bog bridge on the Jenny Lane Footpath. Volunteers will perform, and assist with, the following tasks: carrying lumber one half-mile on the Jenny Lane Footpath to the work site, removing broken boards, replacing broken boards, and carrying broken boards back to the project meeting point. Some tasks will be physically demanding and may involve carrying, lifting and bending as well as using hand tools, such as hammers, hand saws, cordless drills, and crow bars. It is recommended that volunteers bring work gloves, waterproof boots and clothes they don’t mind getting dirty, as this project area may be muddy and wet. Volunteers are also encouraged to bring their own tools. This program is appropriate for children over the age of 13, accompanied by a parent or guardian over the age of 18. Due to COVID protocols, the total number of participants for this program is limited to five individuals. All participants must wear face coverings or keep a minimum of six-foot distance away from others who are not part of their immediate household. Meet at the Lower Parking Area.
