‘Maintain the Chain’ clean up event

fourth lakeInspired by and with the help of the Boon Family of Fourth Lake, the Fulton Chain of Lakes Association is teaming up the Towns of Webb & Inlet, the Adirondack Watershed Institute and the 6th-7th Lake Improvement Association to start an annual volunteer clean-up event to maintain the beautiful lakes and watershed of the Fulton Chain of Lakes.
They are planning to announce this event Memorial Day Weekend with an article in the Adirondack Express and will have registration tables set up – one at the Inlet Information Office and one at the Town of Webb Visitor Center.
They have some activities in mind for this event that will involve waterfront improvements, visiting the Adirondack Watershed Institute’s sanitation station and educating through some of their webcasts. They also plan to have awards for participants, including “Best Project” encouraging people to share some of their own ideas.
If you would like to help the FCLA with awards or have any questions about this event contact John Jeffery [email protected] or Ray Letterman [email protected].
