Little Stony Point plantings

CATCH OF THE DAY — Volunteers cleaned up Little Stony Point near Cold Spring on May 7 for the Riverkeeper Sweep organized for the state’s annual I Love My Park Day. Above, a Boy Scout from Troop 437 couldn’t quite believe what was flushed out of the river. Below, these volunteers added plantings (shown are Donna Pidala, Melissa Bokowski, Mike McNamara and Lauren Martin), while others reinforced the new Overlook Trail. (Photos provided)
