Litter Pickup at Kaaterskill Falls

Sunday, October 5, 2014 - 9:00am - 11:00am

The Catskill Conservation Corps, a partnership between the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference (Trail Conference) and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), invites volunteers to help clean up the Kaaterskill Rail Trail and the area near the top of Kaaterskills on Sunday, October 5 at the Kaaterskill Rail Trail Trailhead on Laurel House Road. 

Volunteers will be working to remove litter from the area surrounding the Kaaterskill Rail Trail and Kaaterskill Falls near the end of the Laurel House Road. 

Volunteers should be sure to wear hiking boots; dress appropriately for the outdoor conditions and our activities; pack plenty of water to stay hydrated; and bring work gloves.  The public is welcome to join work trips of the Catskill Conservation Corps.  No experience is necessary and tools and training will be provided on site before we get started.

Following the work trip, volunteers are invited to join the Catskill Conservation Corps, the Trail Conference, the DEC, and other volunteers from throughout the Catskills at the 2014 Catskills Volunteer Appreciation Picnic being held at the North and South Lake State Campground and Day Use Area.  For more information on the picnic, please visit www.nynjtc.org/2014CatskillsPicnic.

This day of service and recognition is part of the 2014 Catskills Lark in the Park, a 10-day celebration of the Catskill Park and the Catskill Mountains region.  Visit www.catskillslark.org for more information.
