DELAWARE & LEHIGH NATIONAL HERITAGE CORRIDOR would appreciate people helping by picking up trash on the trail as part of the D&L Trail Tenders program. In general people can help clean the D&L Trail or trailheads by picking up trash, removing sticks or brush, and help keep the signs clean. For those who do more than picking up a few things on a walk we ask that they report what they did so we can keep track of it using an online form: https://delawareandlehigh.org/trail-programs/trail-tenders/trail-tenders-reporting-form/
