Decommissioning the Batavia Kill Lean-To

 Registration is closed for this event
Out with the old, in with the new! Join us as we dismantle the shelter at Batavia Kill to reclaim and restore the land.

Join the Catskill Conservation Corps (CCC)  and Trail Conference volunteers for a demolition work trip at the site of the old Batavia Kill Lean-to. The trip will begin at parking area at the end of Big Hollow Rd. From there we will proceed to the old shelter, tools in hand!

Volunteers will dismantle the shelter, and properly dispose of the materials. Our work will allow soil and vegetation to recover, and will direct use towards the new site. The work on the shelter will involve demolition and heavy lifting, but the CCC will furnish gloves, safety glasses, and any tools required to perform this task! 

Meet at the parking area at the end of Big Hollow Rd, at 08:30 sharp! Carpooling is strongly encouraged as parking is limited in the area. This is a two day event, if you are planning to attend only one day we ask that you contact the trip leader to make arrangements.  

Please sign-up in advance so that we know how many people are coming and can let you know of any changes in plans.
