You are invited to a community cleanup day on the Mohawk Towpath Byway on the anniversary of Earth Day, April 21, 2012.
At 10 AM meet at the entrance to the Vischer Ferry Nature and Historic Preserve at the intersection of Van Vranken and Riverview Roads, Clifton Park. Bring your favorite pruning tool(s) or brush cutter well marked so you will not get them mixed up with your fellow volunteer’s. We will be picking up litter and debris and trimming back encroaching vegetation along the towpath trail as we work westward to meet a group starting from Historic Lock 19 and working east.
Dress for the weather in layers with good hiking footwear. Plastic gloves and trash bags will be provided, but if you’re planning to use hand tools your favorite work gloves may work better.
There are other cleanup efforts going on all along the Byway.
This is all a part of the Erie Canal Clean Sweep program going on from Albany to Buffalo and north to Whitehall. Join your neighbors as well as those across the state as we all pitch in to make our communities a better place to live, work and play.
