Save the date: 6th annual Canal Clean Sweep

Wintery weather may make spring seem distant, but preparations for the 6th annual Canal Clean Sweep are underway. This year’s statewide “spring cleaning” of the NYS Canal System and Canalway Trail is set for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 15, 16 and 17. In recognition of Earth Day and in advance of the 186th consecutive navigation season on the Canal System, the NYS Canal Corporation, in partnership with Parks & Trails New York, the NYS Environmental Facilities Corporation and the NYS Consumer Protection Board, is once again encouraging groups and municipalities to engage in clean up and beautification activities along the Canal Corridor. Groups holding Clean Sweep events will receive free T-shirts if they register by the deadline of March 2, 2011. To learn more, contact Parks & Trails New York or 518-434-1583.
