Trail Volunteer Training
The Otsego County Conservation Association, in conjunction with Otsego Outdoors, is offering a Trail Volunteer Training on April 22, 2023, at Basswood Pond State Forest in Burlington, NY.
This event was scheduled for March 25, and then April 1, but due to trail conditions and a rainy forecast, we are postponing to April 22. (Registered participants will be notified on April 20 to confirm the event will go on April 22.)
The goal is to have trained volunteers adopt portions of hiking trails at Basswood Pond State Forest, Arnold Lake State Forest, and Milford State Forest. The April 22 training will cover basic trail maintenance and New York Department of Environmental Conservation rules and regulations.
“This is a great way to enjoy our many trails on whole different level,” said Jeff O’Handley, program director for OCCA. “Having regular trail volunteers will go a long way toward keeping these wonderful resources in good condition for all.”
