Delaware and Lehigh Trail Tenders, the volunteer arm of the Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor, will hold a "Meet and Greet" at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center on April 14 at 9 a.m. for people interested in volunteering with the Northern Lehigh and Carbon County chapters at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center on April 14 at 9 a.m.

D&L Outreach coordinator, Dennis Scholl, will present a half-hour program on volunteer opportunities within the Trail Tenders program. Members of the group will be on hand to explain local programs and answer questions.

The Trail Tenders maintain the D&L Trail from Easton to White Haven and are known for their efforts to eradicate invasive plants along the trail and preserve the trail's historic canal locks and other structures. There are five Trail Tenders chapters: Hugh Moore Park in Easton, Lehigh Valley, Catasauqua/North Catasauqua, Northern Lehigh and Carbon County.

To reach the Nature Center, travel 1.5 miles from the Main Street/Rt. 873 intersection in Slatington and bear right onto Paint Mill Road. Proceed on Paint Mill under Rt. 873 bridge, then continue straight until you see signs for the LGNC.

The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is a 501c3 non-profit corporation that is building the D&L Trail and fostering stewardship of historical, cultural and natural resources along the historic canals and railroads that transported anthracite coal from mines to markets in eastern Pennsylvania.
