Last week the bike club entered into an official stewardship agreement with Scenic Hudson for Illinois Mtn in Highland and Shaupeneak Ridge in Esopus. Scenic Hudson has been extremely helpful and has allowed us to expand the trails at these parks.

Our club members are now officially responsible for basic trail maintenance like clearing blowdowns, leaf blowing and pruning. We are helping out to take the load off Scenic Hudson staff at these parks.

What does this mean for you? Now you can be a trail steward by taking a few minutes during a ride at these places to clear, move or prune branches. We will organize club work days during the year as well.

*** IMPORTANT ***

When you ride or help out at either of these places, PLEASE take 2 minutes to fill out a form for Scenic Hudson: http://www.scenichudson.org/reportform

Your bike riding time can be counted as 'Trail Monitoring'.

It gives the club credit for your time and helps them track volunteer hours. It take no time and will leave a lasting mark with an important land manager we rely on.
