Get Involved With the Super Steward Trail Maintainer Program

The NYC Parks Super Steward: Trail Maintainer program is an initiative of the Natural Areas Conservancy and NYC Parks, with support from the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference.

Trail Maintainers are advanced, independent volunteers who receive training, tools, and resources that strengthen their efforts and enrich their experience. Trail Maintainers learn plant identification, invasive plant removal, corridor pruning, and trail maintenance skills — along with a variety of other trails and natural area management practices.

Trail Maintainers contribute to the stewardship and maintenance of our nature trails, as well as the overall health of our diverse natural areas citywide.

How to become a Super Steward: Trail Maintainer

  1. Become a Super Steward
  2. Attend a Super Steward Trail Maintainer training
  3. Adopt a natural area trail in a New York City park near you
  4. Walk through your adopted trail with a member of the Citywide Trails Team
  5. Commit to the stewardship and maintenance of your adopted NYC natural area trail!
