The Upper Delaware Council made grant awards to the Towns of Deerpark and Lumberland through its 2022 River and Shoreline Clean-up Grants.
The Town of Deerpark will focus efforts on the Hawk’s Nest area of the Upper Delaware Scenic Byway New York State Route 97, a much-photographed winding hillside route which offers sweeping views from 200 feet above the river. The Town Highway Department will conduct three sweeps after Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day to pick up debris along a 2.9-mile section to the Lumberland town line.
The Town of Lumberland will hire a contractor to collect trash every other week during the summer along the town’s river banks from Camp Tel-Yehudah to the Mongaup River Access at the Deerpark border.
