Cherry Hill Trail Crew
The Cherry Hill Trail Crew is a volunteer program of the Cherry Hill Township Environmental Board (CHEB) and is comprised of volunteers who have the principal responsibility of performing trail maintenance on all of the Township’s trails on a monthly basis and to promote conservation. The Trail Crew organizes and hosts corporate, civic, youth groups to perform service projects on the Township’s trails to assist in the maintenance and preservation of Cherry Hill’s open spaces.
Why is Trail Maintenance Important? Well maintained trails provide a pleasant trail experience, make the trails safe, minimizes the impact of the trails to the environment, and minimizes or addresses erosion.
Trail Crew members work with hand tools such as shovels, Macleods, Pulaskis, clippers, rakes, as well as power tools such as mowers and weed trimmers. The Trail crew performs trail clearing, trail improvements including erosion control, minor re-routes, improve wet areas, remove litter and debris, and report problems such as tree falls, vandalism, erosion and unauthorized trail building.
