Help us upgrade Knox’s wetland walkway

To the Editor:
The Knox Conservation Advisory Council needs volunteers.

We are organizing work parties to complete repairs and upgrades to the Knox 76-acre wetland walkway and bog bridge approach. The work has been going on for several months and we need more help than ever.

The materials will be funded by a grant from the Albany County Soil and Water Conservation District. The work needs to  be completed and inspected by Dec. 1, 2023.

Our plan is to work every Saturday from 9 a.m. till noon, and possibly other days, weather  permitting, till completed. We may do smaller work parties during the week, based on  availability.

Most of the work will be arranging the timbers and using fasteners. If you have a cordless screwdriver or impactor and bits, please bring them along. The site has very limited  parking; we suggest parking in the Knox town parking lot on Street Road.

This is on town property; that makes it your property and your natural resources. Help us out by marking your calendar: That’s Sept. 16, 23, 30 and Oct. 7, 14, 21, 28. It may go into November as well. Starting time, again, is 9 a.m. till noon or longer. Dress accordingly; waterproof footwear is recommended.

If you plan on coming, please call, me, Eric, at 518-872-9324. It would help to have a head count. Thanks for your interest. Hope to see you there.
