Boscobel House and Gardens is seeking volunteers for an on-site project designed to celebrate Earth Day.

The Garrison historic site is holding a “Clear & Clean” event at 9:30 a.m. April 22 focusing on The Frances Stevens Reese Woodland Trail of Discovery.

The 1.25-mile trail takes visitors through 29 acres of forested land, traversing a dramatic ravine that leads down to Constitution Marsh.

Volunteers of all ages will spend the morning helping clear and clean the trail, with tools provided to clear overgrowth and downed branches. Volunteers are urged to bring their own water bottles and work gloves and to wear both sturdy shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.

Requested registration can be completed online; participants are asked to then check in at the Carriage House upon arrival.

Boscobel is on Route 9D.
