Last Cleanup Day of the season on Kingston Point Rail Trail

unnamedKingston- Sunday November 16th, the Kingston Land Trust will be hosting its final workday of the season on the Kingston Point Rail Trail from 9am till noon. This will be a great chance to help out with the maintenance of the rail corridor, and get a final glance at the fall weather on the trail before winter approaches.

In an effort to get the trail ready for winter, volunteers will have the option to work on many different tasks including brush clearing, raking leaves and very importantly scouring the corridor for any sort of trash and litter that can take away from the overall natural beauty of the trail. Now more than ever is an important time to keep the Kingston Point Rail Trail maintained, with the ongoing construction as well as a growing awareness from our neighbors about the trail.

Those planning on attending the work day should prepare for the weather and dress in warm clothing. Volunteers are reminded to wear protective clothing in the event of coming into contact with any sort of prickers or mud, and to bring a pair of work gloves as well. If you wish to bring your own work tools, we strongly urge you to mark them and make them easy for you to identify as your own. At 9am, we will be meeting at the Rondout Savings Bank parking lot (300 Broadway).

Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Tim Weidemann, Rail Trail Committee co-Chair  at (845­430­0426) or via email                   (


The Kingston Point Rail Trail is one part of the Kingston Land Trust’s vision for an inter­connected network of the Kingston Land Trust’s vision for an inter­connected network of urban rail trails, pathways, bike ­lanes and complete streets, which has been dubbed the Kingston Greenline.
