Join New York BHA for a clean up in partnership with the NYS Wildlife Management Area team at Monty’s Bay Wildlife Management Area in Plattsburgh, NY on Saturday August 3 from 10 a.m. to about 1 p.m. Monty’s Bay WMA encompasses approximately 318 acres in Clinton County and borders Lake Champlain. This important habitat for both fowl and fur is open to public hunting in season and entices both deer and waterfowl hunters as well as trappers with muskrat and mink populations. The waterfront is a popular fishery for perch, bass, pike and other species.
Volunteers for this event will be assisting with trash/debris cleanup of the area. Bags and the disposal of debris will be provided. We recommend waterproof or water- resistant boots as some areas encountered may be marshy or muddy, and gloves.
We will be providing a grilled hotdog lunch and sodas/water so we do ask you RSVP below so we can provision properly.
There are no fees, and the parking area is located off Harmony Lane in Beekmantown, NY. (See image below)
