Morgan Duke Conservation Society today announced a tree planting and litter clean-up event at the Hudson River Recreation Area on River Road in Lake Luzerne, beginning at noon on May 15. The community is invited to participate in this free event. A check-in table will be located at the big parking lot between the Lake Luzerne-Warrensburg line, by the kiosk. Hand sanitizer, bags, snacks, and water will be provided. Participants are required to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing.
Participants and visitors can walk the campsites and trails, including the Bear Slide trail, and other areas to help pick up garbage. Orange garbage bags and gloves will be provided. The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) will lead a tree planting program at approved locations in the Hudson River Recreation Area. A limited number of shovels and gloves will be available – the community is encouraged to bring their own gloves and shovels. DEC is providing the trees, which will be coming from the Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery.
