Menla Volunteer Trail Restoration Retreat

May 18 - 21, 2017

Menla Volunteer Forest Ecology and Trail Restoration Weekend
with the Menla Staff


In the days when Menla’s pristine land was owned by the Pathwork Center, an extensive web of trails allowed guests to experience the serenity and natural splendor of hiking all around our magical forests. One of our long-term goals is to restore these trails for the benefit of future guests, but we need your help to do it! Last year, a handful of intrepid volunteers joined Menla’s staff in a fun-filled two day restoration of one of the primary trails across the Pantherkill Stream. With a chainsaw, loppers, snips, rakes, and paint, we got a lot done in little time, reclaiming parts of two old trails and trailblazing a connecting path between them.

Join us for this May volunteer weekend, as we explore our woods and further our trail restoration project.
All levels welcome. Please dress comfortably and bring adequate footwear. **WEATHER PERMITTING**

Due to a concurrent group, we have limited housing, so please register as soon as you can!
