Our stewardship chair, Bill, was able to confirm with DEC Forester Tate Connor that the Seward blow down has been cleared. The DEC went in at Shattuck clearing and cleared to the Hermitage. A big thank you to the DEC trail crew!
Lean To Rescue has plans to relocate the lean to that is currently at Plumey Point due to it being flooded off its foundation. It is being relocated to the top of a nearby knoll. The new spot is back away from the water and in a much more desirable location. They are in need of volunteers because of the size of the project which is scheduled for June 24-26. They are planning to set a new foundation on top of the hill, take the old lean to apart and reassemble it with a new roof.

The chapter has just been notified by the DEC that a reroute of the NPT below Plumley’s Point will be started over this summer. Most of it will be on the last private parcel and then some of the Forest Preserve. The new route will avoid the beaver pond area. They will notify us once it is completed and signage has been put up. Check back for any updates.
