MIDDLESEX COUNTY — Individuals are being sought for the Middlesex County Conservation Corps, whose mission is to protect and preserve natural areas from misuse, polluters and the forces of nature at the more than 7,000 acres of open space owned and maintained by Middlesex County.
The corps is administered by the Middlesex County Department of Parks and Recreation.
The annual Fall Trails Day event is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 6. The event will begin off Riva Avenue in East Brunswick. Participants should follow signs to the starting point, a parking lot on Riva Avenue just south of Derby Lane.
The projects will include trail work, clearing brush and invasive plants and trash pickup. The event will be held rain or shine. No special skills are required, although volunteer candidates should have an interest in being outdoors.
For more information and to obtain a volunteer application, contact Valerie Leone at the Middlesex County Parks and Recreation Department, 1-732-745-3064, or visit www.co.middlesex.nj.us/parksrecreation/conservcorp.asp.
