Each April the NYS Canal Corporation, in partnership with Parks & Trails New York and the Environmental Facilities Corporation promotes Clean Sweep, an annual state wide effort to clean up along canals in the early spring. In conjunction with Clean Sweep the Feeder Canal Alliance hosts a Clean Up Day, typically on the weekend closest to Earth Day, but the date may change based on weather and canal water levels. Volunteers meet at Murray Park in Hudson Falls or can call the office at (518) 792-5363 to arrange a different location to clean up. Every volunteer and effort to help clean up and maintain the canal and trail is greatly appreciated.
For more opportunities to help clean up the canal and trail contact the office at (518) 792-5363 to find out about our Adopt-A-Trail program.
