Organizers say they may need as many as 200 volunteers to help clear fallen trees, prune bushes and shrubs, and help create walking trails that will lead to a pond at the 25-acre Menlo Park property.

They hope to enlist help from of area landscapers, owners of garden centers and nurseries, and township residents who are willing to bring their own chainsaws, wheelbarrows, rakes and shovels.
