Join the Gallows Run Watershed Association and Delaware Canal State Park staff on a fall trash cleanup of Gallows Run and Lynn Island! Learn about the unique aspects of this state park natural area while helping preserve its natural habitat.
Volunteers will be working on two projects during this cleanup. First, a stream cleanup along lower Gallows Run and the roadside along Rt 32, and then canoe across the Delaware River to clean up trash and debris deposited on the northern tip of Lynn Island during high water events. All volunteers for the island cleanup must be physically fit and at least 12 years of age.
Volunteers will need sturdy rubber work shoes or waders to collect trash along the river, and long-sleeved shirts and pants are recommended. A bucket for trash is also helpful. A limited number of hip waders, buckets, and trash grabbers will be provided. Refreshments will be provided to all volunteers! Registration is required - click here for more information.
