Dan will be retiring soon and was looking for a meaningful activity to keep him active.
“Adopting this trail is a great way for me to enjoy nature and the outdoors. It also helps me achieve my goal of getting outside and getting exercise,” said Dan.
Dan learned about becoming a Trail Adopter after volunteering with the Land Trust trail building crew. He says he has met many interesting folk during his volunteer time.
As a boy, Dan grew up in the woods of Pennsylvania. He says trail work comes naturally to him. Now a Lake Wildwood resident, the Black Swan Trail is located just a short drive from his home.
“The trail is in my neighborhood and I want to protect what little nature we have left,” Dan said.
