Trail Work 

The Trail Crew managed in partnership with the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference builds low impact hiking trail around the Northern New Jersey area in the Ramapo Reservation, Ramapo Mountain State Forest, Waywayanda State Forest, Norvin Green State Forest, and more. Interns are led by a MEVO crew leader that is trained by the Trail Conference and the crew is overseen by a Trail Conference Field Manager who provides summer-long instruction on-site regarding the crew’s trail projects and trail building techniques and tool use.  When done properly, trail building can act as a powerful tool for the conservation of our green spaces while offering accesses to the outdoors for many. As a community-based organization with a vested interest in the health of our environment and the people in it, we note the importance of keeping our trails well built and maintained by providing staff and interns to assist in the work of the Trail Conference. Our crew also welcomes volunteers to come and experience trail building with us each Sunday during our summer season. Volunteer opportunities with our crew are posted each summer on
