Second Saturday Trail Volunteering @ Beaver Bend Nature Preserve



Second Saturday Trail Volunteering @ Beaver Bend Nature Preserve

Join CHamplain area trails in tackling invasives at beaver bend nature preserve  on Saturday, April 13th at 9 A.M.


The trail through the Beaver Bend Preserve passes through a beautiful forest and pasture perched above the Boquet River.  For this work day, we will cut down many of these invasives, including Japanese knotweed, buckthorn, honeysuckle, or bittersweet. We will also start planting trees to help combat the erosion of the riverbank. This trail is about half a mile, and we will focus on handsawing, lopping, and lifting. 


This new partnership with Essex County Soil and Water Conservation District will focus on improving the landscape and ecosystem above the river in this part of the valley.  


We will work with loppers and hand saws, which Champlain Area Trails can provide. Feel free to bring your own tools as well. 


DIRECTIONS: We will meet at the Beaver Bend Nature Preserve, which is located in Westport, NY, on Angier Hill Road, about 0.8 miles south of Whallonsburg. Click here for the Google map directions.  We will wrap up between 12 pm and 1 pm.  


REGISTRATION: Please register by 6:00 p.m. the day before the event by emailing tony@champlainareatrails.com, but it's also okay to meet us there on Saturday morning.
