In recognition of Earth Day 2018 and in preparation for the 194th consecutive navigation season on the New York State Canal System, the New York State Canal Corporation is partnering with Parks & Trails New York to sponsor the 13th Annual Canal Clean Sweep during the weekend of April 20-22.
Canal Clean Sweep highlights the growing significance of the canal system and the canalway trail system as a recreational and tourism destination across the state. Community organizations, service groups, municipalities and businesses across the state will participate in Canal Clean Sweep, hosting more than 100 local clean-up activities in canalside parks and other community spaces, and on their local canalway trail segments.
