UNION COUNTY, NJ – Jersey Care volunteers and Union County Adopt-a-Trail stewards recently helped to re-route a severely eroded section of the Geology Trail. A freak summer storm last August deposited 8 inches of rain in one hour which caused a great deal of damage on trails throughout the Reservation. Volunteers helped to block the old section of trail and open a new portion to allow trail users easy and safe access. Additional work for the trail is planned.

Volunteers taking part in Adopt-a-Trail make a two year commitment to monitor and maintain a trail or a section of a trail four times a year.

If you, your organization, or company would like to take part in Union County’s Adopt-a-Trail program, please call Parks & Recreation at908-789-3683.
