Preserving Staten's Island's Great Outdoors


Volunteer with us!

From trail maintenance to trail races and special events, we rely on volunteers to keep the Greenbelt in great hiking shape.  Volunteers of all ages are welcome to  join us.  In addition to outdoor projects, we have clerical opportunities as well. Community and school service credit may be arranged.
