Wild Edible & Medicinal Plants

Learn about the many plants that grow along the trail. 

Dr. Burgess will be leading a trek Saturday June 24, 2017 at 10am, to teach you all about the plants along Saranac River Trail and their many uses. Come learn which plants are a tasty addition to a salad, and which ones are useful when you have an upset stomach. Dr. Burgess's talk covers the plant's history, uses, and optimum harvesting times and techniques. You're sure to walk away from this trek with a new outlook on the plants you see everytime you walk the trail.

Saranac River Trail Greenway -- Blue Trails Extension: Conditions Report

The trail will extend from the current westward terminus at George Angell Drive in the City of Plattsburgh to a point approximately 2.15 miles to the west at Reeves Lane in the Town of Plattsburgh. This section of the trail is ready for advancement since it will be constructed on public sector property, extending through the Plattsburgh City School District High School property, the SUNY Plattsburgh Field House and sports complex and westward across City of Plattsburgh property to Reeves Lane. With the views of the river and especially the imperial dam, there is a desire to keep the trail near river.

Clinton County (County) has received Regional Waterfront Program Key Project funds to design the next segment of the Saranac River Trail Greenway in the City and Town of Plattsburgh.This project is supported by funding from the Environmental Protection Fund through the New York State Department of State (DOS) Local Waterfront Revitalization Program.
