This Saturday, Aug. 3, the Friends of Allegany State Park are organizing a group effort to pick up litter on the waterways and lakes on the Quaker side of Allegany State Park. All are welcome to come and help.

Please register in the Quaker Rental Office any time after 10 a.m. to pick up free gloves and garbage bags to help the cause.

There will be a list of creek/loop areas and a rough draft of Quaker Lake with 18 highlighted areas for folks to claim the pick-up area as their own. Please write in the creek or area you’ll be working on, so volunteers can coordinated in various areas of need.

Please bring a bag lunch or cooler if you’re working late.

In September, Friends of Allegany State Park will be working on the Red House side, most likely painting cabins on Beehunter and doing touch-ups on the new siding replacement at Camp Allegany.

Come one, come all! It is because of the generosity of our volunteers that we can make a difference!
