The Friends of Whitehall‘s fall lake and trail clean-up will be held on Saturday, October 21, from 9:00 – 12:00. The group will gather at the boat landing parking lot at Whitehall State Park on Wood St. (Route 135) and assign areas of trails and shoreline around the lake to clean up debris and refuse. They will work on both the DCR state trails and the Whitehall Conservation Area trails. They will also clean up some of the roadside near the lake.
Gloves, trash bags, tools, bug spray and water will be provided, as well as coffee and donuts for volunteers. Working with the approval of the Department of Conservation and Recreation, Friends of Whitehall invite you to enjoy nature and help your community at the same time.
The Friends of Whitehall started in 2005 and have held annual clean-ups since. As a registered non-profit, FOW’s mission is to preserve, protect and improve the wonderful natural resource of Lake Whitehall and its environs.
