Chainsaws welcome, gloves and boots recommended
Little Stony Point Citizens Association is hosting its annual Spring Cleanup this Saturday, April 20. Volunteers will meet at the Caretaker’s House, 3011 Route 9D in Cold Spring, at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. for two-hour shifts. Thick-soled shoes and gloves are recommended, and those with chainsaws are especially welcome. Bags, hard rakes and wheelbarrows will be provided.
This event is open to all ages and is a great way to teach about the impacts of litter and styrofoam. Much of the work, however, is clearing the North Beach of organic matter that has washed ashore with the flotsam and jetsam. Giant driftwood trees, millions of devilheads and a dense carpet of twigs from Sandy’s aftermath await.
