Are you ready to roll up your sleeves to help care for local trails?

The Adirondack chapter of The Nature Conservancy is doing some spring cleaning and is looking for volunteers to help us at the Boquet River Nature Preserve on Saturday, May 7, 10AM-2PM.

This preserve in downtown Willsboro connects community with conservation and offers professionally designed trails including Tim’s Trail, which can accommodate walkers, runners, strollers and wheelchairs. It includes 120 acres of floodplain and upland forest, and more than a half-mile of shoreline on the lower Boquet River, the most intact major tributary emptying into Lake Champlain. 

We’re also hosting a volunteer day at Clintonville Pine Barrens Preserve on Saturday, May 14, 10AM-2PM.

This 900-acre preserve is home to one of the most northerly and best examples of a pitch pine-heath barrens community in New York. Its sit on a sand delta deposited 12,000 years ago by glacial meltwater. The sandy, well-drained soil gives life to the unique pine barrens natural community.

Please join us to help care for local trails and unique ecosystems! For more information and to RSVP
please email bethany.pelkey@tnc.org or call 518-576-2082.
