Dig The Falls is a team of individuals dedicated to the preservation, cleanup and enjoyment of our state’s waterfalls and surrounding areas. Our waterfall survey contains over 3,200 waterfall locations and is still growing in both data and location collection.
Our past and future efforts:
I Love My Park Day Sponsor and volunteer at several locations (2018)
Poestenkill Gorge cleanup (Troy - 2017)
Oakwood Cemetery and falls cleanup (Lansingburgh – 2018)
Indian Kill Nature Preserve cleanup (Glenville – 2017/2018)
Ausable River Porta-John Program (contributor 2018)
The Narrows – Impending partnership (Troy – 2018) https://narrowstroy.org/
Mine Kill Falls State Park – Continuing partnership to map/photograph trails
Pixley Falls State Park – Impending partnership to aid in reopening park
Our efforts throughout the state are to restore and clean up public, private and state-owned lands to allow safe enjoyment of these locations for everyone. Private/posted locations are especially important to us due to the number of locations that become private because of the misuse and trespassing on the beautiful properties.
Dig The Falls has been almost 100% funded by it’s small team of hiking and waterfall enthusiasts. This year we hope you might consider joining us in a cleanup effort or possibly donating a small amount to fund one of these efforts. It only takes $5 to make a huge impact!
