Please join the Harvard Club of New Jersey on Sunday, October 11 at 9am at the South Mountain reservation located just west of South Orange, NJ to help support the growth and maintenance of the wonderful trail network found throughout the reservation. Many of the trails and paths found in South Mountain are not sustainable trails, and as such need regular maintenance to keep them in good shape for our general use. It is through volunteer groups such as our own that the reservation is able to keep an extensive network of beautiful nature trails all available for free public use.
Bring your family (children 12+) and show them how much fun can be had in the great outdoors, away from tvs, iphones, and video games. With your help, we'll spend a fun fall morning learning about our natural parks in this area of N. NJ and also contributing greatly to the sustainability of the trails that are enjoyed by so many.
Recommended attire: we suggest wearing long pants (jeans work great), shoes that you don't mind getting dirty, long sleeves, a hat, and light gloves. Tools and refreshments will be provided.
For additional information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call JT McGrath at 202-905-2698.
About South Mountain Reservation:
"As the largest park in the Essex County Park System, the Reservation is a unique 2,110-acre public land. Endowed with hills, rivers, and woodlands, the Reservation has been preserved primarily in its wild state.
"It offers 50 miles of trails and inspiring scenery: vistas of New York City, a dramatic 25-foot waterfall at Hemlock Falls, the cascade of Maple Brook in the deep woods, and millponds, streams, and picnic areas and open fields in the interior valley.
After more than 100 years, it remains a green island in the midst of a sea of urbanization."
