BYRAM — Did you know that National Trails Day is being celebrated on June 2, 2018? Trail hikes and clean-up events are being held across America to demonstrate support for this important event. The goal of National Trails Day is to promote awareness of the wide variety of benefits that trails provide, encourage people to discover their local trails and instill excitement for the outdoors. This year, National Trails Day coincides with the 50th anniversary of America’s Trail System.

The American Hiking Society invites you to join the nationwide efforts by improving a trail on National Trails Day. Anyone can leave a trail better than they found it, by simply picking up trash or joining an organized trail work project.

Please join Byram Township in supporting National Trails Day on Saturday, June 2nd from 9 am to 12 noon. The Environmental Commission and Recreation Department are co-sponsoring a trail hike and clean-up at Tamarack Park. Participants are invited to help maintain the trail by removing barberry plants (an invasive species), picking up trash and/or hiking the 1.5 mile trail. Feel free to volunteer for the entire morning or even for an hour or two.

Tamarack Park is Byram’s newest facility and is located on the northbound side of Route 206 right next to Panther Lake. The Park features playing fields and a great trail connecting to C.O. Johnson Park.

If you are interested in participating in this event, please contact dfett@byramtwp.org or 973347-2500 x138 for additional information. For more information on National Trails Day, please view their website at www.americanhiking.org/national-trails-day.
