The River Walk Stewardship program connects apprentices with a unique National Recreation Trail, a greenway along the scenic Housatonic River in Great Barrington, MA.

In September of 2012, Greenagers became the official steward organization of the River Walk and as such is responsible for trail maintenance; trail work internships and volunteer days; and community outreach and education. Greenagers employs two youth each year to serve as River Walk Apprentices from April through November. Apprentices take care of weekly maintenance on the trail, help lead group tours and volunteer days, and receive training and mentor-ship by River Walk’s on-staff Horticulturalist, Heather Cupo, and Greenagers’ River Walk supervisor, Elia Del Molino.
