National Trails Day is coming soon! Those looking to join the Monmouth County Park System’s Trails Team for this annual event are invited to attend a free training session on Saturday, May 16 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Held at the Thompson Park Longbridge Annex, 53 Longbridge Road, Holmdel, this workshop serves as an introduction to park system safety rules, tools and equipment, and maintenance overview. All volunteers are required to attend an initial training session before working on the trails. To register, please contact Melissa Bezahler at 732-842-4000, ext. 4283, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Trails Team meets once or twice a month on Saturday mornings at various county parks throughout the season. During these sessions, volunteers assist in maintaining old trails and constructing new ones.
