The Keystone Trails Association invites volunteers to come out and work on the McKeever-Goddard hiking trail! This is one of only two trails within the park that are specifically set aside for hikers, and it has been years since the trail has been completely open from its connection with the bike trail clear to McKeever Environmental Learning Center. KTA has a complete day of work lined up and we need as much help as we can get from our partners. Volunteers will meet at Maurice-Goddard State Park, at the Launch #1 Pavilion at 8:30 a.m., to begin a day of trail work. A modest lunch will be provided for participants so please make sure to register for this event. To register, please contact McKeever Center at 724-376-1000.
