To Attend:

Join the Quassaick Creek Watershed Alliance for an invasive species removal project on Saturday, July 9, 2016 at 9am at Algonquin Park in Newburgh (map). The Water Chestnut has taken over the two mill ponds in Algonquin Park and covers over 90% of the pond’s surface.

All able bodied persons over 18 are welcome and appreciated. Volunteers should wear sturdy clothes and shoes, be prepared to get wet, and bring gloves, drinking water, and if possible, a metal garden rake. Volunteers will meet at the mill pond in Algonquin Park located at the corner of Route 52 and Powder Mill Rd. in the Town of Newburgh.

If you can volunteer this weekend, please e-mail John at [email protected].
