Adopt-a-Highway Earth Day Clean-up

The Friends Group has adopted a portion of a highway near the park to keep clean in order to beautify the area around the park. Our section of highway is Mountain View Drive (Route # 563) from Deerwood Lane, north to Pheasant Run Road, then south back to Deerwood Lane.


They are asking YOU to help make their Spring Cleanup event a success again this year! Participants should meet at the Marina Visitor Center parking lot at 8:30 AM on Saturday, April 21 – rain or shine! Long pants and sleeves, as well as rain gear (if needed) and water is recommended for safety. Safety vests, glasses and work gloves will be provided. Please bring your own if you own any.


Presented by the Friends of Nockamixon State Park.
