Trail Steward for Hudson Highlands and Fahnestock


Do you love experiencing the natural beauty of the Hudson Highlands? Do you want to help ensure visitors preserve our landscapes while enjoying the trails?

Join the Trail Conference and the Hudson Highland Land Trust as we create a Volunteer Trail Steward Program for Hudson Highlands State Park Preserve and Clarence Fahnestock State Park. 

Our Trail Stewards educate trail users about natural resource protection, trail safety, and Leave No Trace principles to protect our trails and landscapes in the Hudson Valley and minimize the need for First Aid and Rescues.


Position Details

This is a long-term, year-round position. Volunteers can visit their locations as their schedule allows and are required to send in a digital report each time they volunteer.
