Trail Works “Canal Clean Sweep” and Mural Dedication April 23
April 23 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Feel like getting your hands dirty this spring? Trail Works is participating in the 17th Annual “Canal Clean Sweep” Event on Saturday, April 23. This event is held each year around Earth Day in conjunction with NYS Canal Corporation and Parks & Trails New York. We will be meeting at Erie Canal Lock E-56 (7473 Dry Dock Road) in Lyons. The clean-up begins at 9 am. Work clothes, gloves, and footwear are recommended. Hand tools for brush clearing would be helpful. We will start by clearing brush around the historic Erie Canal Lock E-56. At 11:00 a.m., we will break and move over to the back of the Canal Dry Dock Office on Old Lyons Rd, for a formal dedication of two iconic murals produced by the Mural Mania team. The Dipper Dredge No.3 mural was installed during the Canal Clean Sweep in 2021, and the E-56 mural was installed in early November 2021. These two murals are side by side and only 15 feet from the Empire State Bike trail, and honor those who worked on the Erie/Barge Canals. Why not plan to join us for the morning? For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call Mark DeCracker at (315) 573-8170.
