Join the Long Distance Trails Crew of the New York - New Jersey Trail Conference on the Appalachian Trail (AT) at Harriman State Park, NY. We will be working on trail rehabilitation or relocation of an original section of the AT on West Mountain or Black Mountain. Learn how to build sustainable trails including how to move large rocks, bench cut trails, and build stone steps and crib walls. Much of the work will involve using heavy hand tools and some rigging with a high line (overhead cable) to move heavy rocks. There will also be lighter duty work but all involves moderate to strenuous physical labor. The work-sites are about a mile from the parking area and road and there will be very little carrying of equipment to the site. No experience is necessary; the crew provides the necessary equipment, training, and camaraderie for a fun and rewarding day where you will be able to immediately see the results of your efforts. All you need to provide is lunch and water, gloves, a smile, and a desire to work hard and safely in the great outdoors.

As Minnewaska is ripe with natural edible plants, we will talk about which wild foods are abundant in our forests. We will also discuss ethical and sustainable foraging and collecting practices, which are prohibited in State Parks, and we’ll share some recipes for the bounty we will see, too.

All visitors to the United States Military Academy are encouraged to tour the Museum to view the oldest and largest diversified public collection of miltaria in the Western Hemisphere. The Museum supports cadet academic, military and cultural instruction. Its collections include nearly all aspects of military history and encompass the history of West Point and the United States Military Academy, the evolution of warfare, and the development of the American Armed Forces. Based upon captured British materials brought to West Point after the British defeat at Saratoga in 1777, the Museum collections actually predate the founding of the United States Military Academy. When the Academy opened in 1802, many Revolutionary War trophies remained to be used for cadet instruction. By the 1820s, a teaching collection of artifacts existed at the Military Academy and after the Mexican War (1846 - 1848) West Point was designated by Executive Order as the permanent depository of war trophies. In 1854 the first public museum was opened and today it represents the culmination of more than two centuries of preserving our military heritage.
