Event Overview

The Mission Continues Brooklyn Platoon is deploying once again to Fort Wadsworth, one of the nation’s oldest military bases first established in 1663. On this day of service, platoon members and supporters will be removing the invasive species, trees, and years of overgrown plants from the historic Battery Weed Cannon Trail along with students from the Student Conservation Association. With the 2nd Phase of this project, The Mission Continues Brooklyn Platoon is working to open this historic trail to the public the weekend of National Trails Day, June 4th. There’s tons of work to be done and we need all the helping hands we can get. Come on out and join us for this once in a lifetime service project. For participants taking the ferry to Staten Island, free volunteer shuttles will depart from the Staten Island Ferry St. George Terminal at 9:00am and will return to the ferry after the project. If you wish to take the free volunteer shuttles, please plan to take the 8:30am ferry from Manhattan.

What To Wear

Clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. We’ll also have The Mission Continues shirts available for attendees

What to Bring

There’s plenty of parking in the parking lot next to the trail. The SCA is also providing transportation to the event.


Amazing energy and a friend. The person who brings the most friends gets a nice gift.
