Description
In spring 2015, Met Council will open an assisted living facility for low-income seniors

on a large plot of land in Staten Island. Surrounded by nature, the site includes space for

a trail that will connect with the longest hiking trail in the area, providing new

recreation opportunities for residents, visitors, staff and members of the community. To

clear the trail and make it safe, particularly for older adults, Met Council is conducting a

trailblazing project where volunteers are needed to help clear the trail. Following a brief

orientation with information about Met Council and safety training, volunteers will cut

hanging branches, rake leaves and dig up roots from small trees that may block the trail.

They will pick up trash and place markers to ensure the trail is clearly visible and easy

to follow. This project will allow Met Council to beautify a neglected space in a way

that engages volunteers and helps the elderly.
