Call for volunteers April 19
The Little Stony Point Citizens Association invites those willing and able to join them for their Annual Spring Cleanup, Saturday April 19. The park, surrounded by the Hudson on three sides, is part of the Hudson Highlands State Park. Sticking out into the water, the sandy beaches leftover from its days as a rock quarry catch much of the flotsam and jetsam that float down the river following the ice melting. Trees, tires, boats, picnic tables, recycle buckets, water bottles and Styrofoam are a few of the items that have been deposited in the past.
Wear thick-soled shoes; kids are welcome; bags and pickers are provided. Hard rakes and chainsaws are appreciated. Shifts (two hours each) leave the Caretaker’s House (3011 Route 9D, 10516) at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Visit littlestonypoint.org.
