NJBG invites the public to learn more about the many miles of beautiful hiking trails at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden on Saturday, April 12, 2014. Join them at 1 p.m. in the Carriage House Visitor Center for a program presented by John Leigh of the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, whose volunteers maintain the trails around the Botanical Garden.

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has over 1,300 volunteers, and does over 65,000 hours of service each year protecting and preserving the trails in New York and New Jersey. This introduction to the Trail Conference is designed to give the participants a great overview of the organization and its work. Topics include the history of the trail conference, new projects that the trail conference is involved with, how you can become involved, and local environmental issues.

The program is free, but a $5 donation is requested. For more information, contact NJBG at info@njbg.org.

NJBG/Skylands is located on Morris Road in Ringwood. For an event schedule, membership brochure, directions or more information, call 973-962-9534 or visit www.njbg.org.
