Invasive Species and Water Pollution -- What You Can Do to Help


Friends of Saranac River Trail is hosting two treks in July that focus on some of the challenges of the summer. 

Keeping the Lake Clean: Water Pollution Control Plant Tour

Saturday, July 28, 2018 10-11:30 AM is our annual tour of the Water Pollution Control Plant. See what we can do together to keep the Lake clean.

Hint: If it goes down the drain in your house, it will have to be treated in the Plant. 
Remember the saying: "An ounce of prevention is worth a gallon of cure.") 
Best comment from a past tour: "It's like walking through a chemistry se!t" 

Meet at the Plant at 10 AM. If you're driving, park in the lot at the Amtrak Station or at the Plant on Green Street.

Wear sturdy shoes. Some stair-climbing is required, but the views from the roof are spectacular. 

Reservations help us plan.
