ADOPT A TRAIL
ON THE LEEDS POND PRESERVE
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH:
In October 2021, TTPW launched “Adopt a Trail”; a joint project with the Science Museum of Long Island. In the first 2 weeks of the program 15 people volunteered to help maintain the Museum’s trails and grounds, including removal of invasive species. In addition a team of 4 “ Navigators” and a staff member from the Nicholas Center also maintain a trail. The Nicholas Center’s mission is to include Autistic individuals in all facets of community life.
The Adopt a Trail program has been structured to accommodate people’s schedules and encourage participation. The volunteers can come anytime during daylight hours and can do as much or as little as they want to do. Many of the volunteers bring their children, relatives and friends to help. Basic instruction on trail Maintenance and hand tools is provided.
During the winter months there is less trail maintenance to do, but the “Trailblazers” come to enjoy the beauty of the Science Museum’s 36 acres, and the magnificent views over Manhasset Bay. There are still several trail sections that need to be adopted. So if you are interested email Paul.email@example.com and Paul will help you find your trail.
