Members Only Event: Trail Work Introductory Meeting

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017 at 9:00 AM we are holding our first Trail Maintenance meeting at the St. Helena shelter. The purpose of this meeting will be for us to understand expectations for trail clearing and maintenance with park management. In addition, we have decided to begin an ‘Adopt a Trail’ program for those interested in maintaining a specific trail or section of trail.

We will be working on Trail #13 (the St. Helena Trail) for our exercise in practical trail work after meeting at the St. Helena shelter.

Feel free to bring appropriate hand tools for vegetation & branch trimming (hand pruners, hand saws, loppers, etc). No motorized tools, please. Insect repellent and sunscreen will be appropriate depending upon the conditions.

Please dress for working out on the trail and bring appropriate hydration for yourself.

I sincerely hope you can celebrate Earth Day 2017 with us as we kick off our newest project.

This is a FoLSP members only event.   Not a member?  It’s easy to join!  CLICK HERE

Autism Nature Trail Coming to Humphrey Nature Center

Mt. Morris, N.Y. (WHAM) – In 2015, Letchworth State Park was named USA TODAY’s Readers’ Choice for Best State Park. A small group has quietly been trying to make “best” even better.

It began when Loren Penman of Batavia had a conversation with a friend about the effect the park had on her grandson who lives near Albany. Her grandson is on the autism spectrum.
