The Friends of Whitehall will hold our 14th annual fall clean-up on Sat. Oct. 13th from 9 a.m. until noon. Please join us at the boat landing at Whitehall State Park on Wood St (Rte. 135) in Hopkinton for a little fresh air, fun and work! Our goal is to pick up trash and debris from the trails and shoreline around Lake Whitehall, as well as some of the roadside areas near the lake. The lake and trails were heavily used this past summer, so we will have plenty to do. Kayakers, canoeists, and other boaters are also welcome to help with cleaning up trash in the lake itself.

We will provide coffee, hot chocolate, and doughnuts to volunteers during sign-in. After signing in, volunteers will be assigned a particular section of the trail, road, or lake (for boating volunteers) to work on. Bug spray, gloves, trash bags, tools, and water will be provided. We hope that we will have many volunteers to help us with this effort. Friends of Whitehall is proud to assist the Department of Conservation and Recreation in the maintenance of the Park and Lake Whitehall.

The Friends of Whitehall, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, was formed in 2005. Our main mission is to preserve, protect and improve the wonderful natural resource of Lake Whitehall and its surrounding area.
