We miss our many trail volunteers and friends. Please stay healthy and be safe. We hope to see you soon.
Dear Friends of Montclair Railroad Trail,
The year 2020 was certainly unusual for all, including the Railroad Trail. Fortunately, it has become a welcome outdoor refuge for the community with many newcomers and dogs enjoying the trail.
Once COVID-19 brought social distancing and mask wearing to our lives, many things were curtailed including our familiar monthly volunteer workdays. However, to ensure that the trail is an enjoyable experience for all, Board Members of the Friends of Montclair Railroad Trail have continued to work quietly behind the scenes to remove graffiti quickly, pick up trash, sweep, and clean up overflowing garbage cans. We always welcome your help in keeping the trail clean.
In addition to regular maintenance, here are the projects Board Members accomplished:
Special kudos to Board Member Jeff Kahn. The trail would not be the clean, well-kept trail that it is without his dedicated work. Jeff regularly removes graffiti, trash, and dog waste from the trail and its surroundings. He also fills the dog waste bag dispensers to the tune of 15,000 bags annually. Waste bags are generously donated by Pet Food Express.
The Board Members join me in wishing you a safe and healthy new year and thanking you for your support. May the Montclair Railroad Trail be part of your enjoyment.
Barbara Brochard, Chair, Friends of Montclair Railroad Trail
