The Ausable River Association (AsRA) and the Rotary Club of the Au Sable Valley, in partnership with Rotary Club of Lake Placid, One Tree Planted, Lake Champlain Chapter of Trout Unlimited, and Adirondack Riverwalking, are hosting an Ausable River clean-up on Saturday, April 24.
The clean-up is open to all community members who want to restore and protect the beauty of the West and East Branch Ausable River. “In past years, we’ve hosted a river clean-up in September along the Main Stem Ausable River near Carpenter’s Flats,” said Tyler Merriam, Donor Outreach Manager at AsRA. “We’re excited to partner with so many great organizations this year to host a spring event as part of Rotary International’s Great Lakes Watershed Cleanup.”
The clean-up will take place along the roadside in an effort to remove trash built up over the winter. The West Branch portion will cover the roadside from Lake Everest in Wilmington to the Ski Jumps in Lake Placid. The East Branch portion will cover the roadside from the hamlet of Jay to the hamlet of Keene.
