Who are the folks maintaining trails at the nature center?

Following is an excerpt from the Trail Conference's "Trail Walker," newsletter, July/August 2010:

"Like the cavalry, New Jersey residents Jack Driller of Ridgewood and Mark Liss of Fairlawn came to the rescue at the Tenafly Nature Center/Lost Brook Preserve (TNC), where trail maintainers faced 6 miles of devastated trails after a hurricane-like windstorm ripped through the area in early March. Jack and Mark came armed with their chain saws (and chain saw certification) and put their skills to work helping maintainers Pete Tilgner, Suzan Gordon, and Janet Albrecht clear 133 blow-downs at the Bergen County preserve."
