Upcoming events

AHMP-NJ has scheduled another CHMMunity® Event

Parker Trail Maintenance – Sunday, November 3, 2019

Where: Highpoint State Park – Parker Trail Loop

When: Sunday, November 3, 2019 @ 9am

On Sunday, November 3rd AHMP-NJ will be holding one of our CHMMunity service events.

We welcome all interested members, family members, associates and others to assist in the maintenance of the Parker Trail in Highpoint State Park. We will meet on Deckertown Turnpike at 9 am for the two mile Parker Trail maintenance.  We anticipate clearing some overgrowth on the trail, so bring loppers, pruning shears, and a bow saw if you have them.  Ron Kurtz will bring trail markers and additional tools for those that don't have their own.   To clear this trail normally takes about three hours with a group of five people. If there are more volunteers or we finish early, we can clear the entrance to the adjoining trail.

Attendees will want to bring at least two (2) bottles of water and wear comfortable work clothing (long pants & shirt, hiking boots, work gloves, hat, etc.). If you have bear repellent and/or bug spray please bring it.

Any questions, please contact Lisa Sibrel 201-232-4548

Parker Trail Maintenance - October 14, 2017

AHMP-NJ members met up at High Point State Park to clean-up part of the Parker Loop.  The full loop is an 11.8 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Montague, NJ.  Our team concentrated on about 1 mile of the trail.

We successfully cleared the trail of undergrowth and fallen logs and timber.  Along the way, we found some wildlife and collected 2 bags of garbage.  We accomplished the clean-up in around 4 ½ hours and had an exciting, entertaining and productive morning.

Habitat for Humanity ReStore
February 11, 2012

Habitat’s ReStore resale outlets sell reusable and surplus building materials to the public
While every ReStore outlet is a little different, most focus on home improvement goods like furniture, home accessories, building materials and appliances.

ReStore resale outlets accept donated goods which are sold to the general public at a fraction of the retail price. The proceeds help local Habitat affiliates fund the construction of Habitat homes within their communities.

Promoting reuse and recycling

ReStore resale outlets provide an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste stream while providing funding for Habitat’s community improvement work.
