On April 29, Vernon, N.J., was officially designated an Appalachian Trail Community—the second A.T. Community in New Jersey. Among those presenting the honor during the event at Heaven Hill Farm were Trail Conference Executive Director Ed Goodell, Director of the Mid-Atlantic Region for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy Karen Lutz, Regional Superintendent of Northern Division of NJ State Park System Joshua Osowski, and other state and local officials. “We look forward to working with our new friends in the Vernon Trail Community on raising awareness of the Appalachian Trail and sharing the joys of this natural resource with an even greater number of people,” Ed said.
