Greenagers Trail Crews are off and running!
Three out of five Greenagers Trail Crews started work today: two Berkshire County crews and one Columbia County crew. The remaining two crews begin work a week from today. We are so excited for this year’s crews and the fun, challenging, and rewarding work ahead of them.
We will continue to update this site with news on the crews’ whereabouts and work, so continue to check back in!
Greenagers get griphoist training
“It’s the size of a mini-bus, there’s no way we’re moving it” asserted Elia Del Molino, Trails Coordinator at Greenagers. “I’ll take that bet” countered Mike Leavitt, Trails and Outreach Coordinator from Berkshire Natural Rources Council (BNRC). The friendly bet, which Elia ultimately lost, was in reference to a 10-ton boulder—a sizable piece of gneiss that would be moved by one person wielding but one grip hoist. The situation was one of the many impressive and daunting challenges poised at last week’s Greenager Grip Hoist Training.
