Groups collaborate on Hague Brook project

HAGUE Hague Brook, with the help of its neighbor, Lake George Land Conservancys Hague Foundation Park, has under gone a major facelift recently, thanks to a collaboration between LGLC, Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), the town of Hague, the Lake George Association and Lake George Watershed Conference. The two-acre park, gifted to LGLC in 2004 by the Hague Charitable Foundation, was used by the SWCD to access the brook and create a 140-by-20-foot sediment pond, from which approximately 700 yards of material was removed. The pond is designed to slow the brooks water flow before it enters Lake George, allowing the sediments to settle into the pond instead of adding to the large delta at the mouth of Hague Brook. LGLC also has colorful plans for the Park in 2008. Together with local volunteers and the United Plant Savers, which will be providing a grant for the project, LGLC will install a series of educational native plant beds and an accessible trail to create a welcoming resource for the Hague community and its guests. Anyone interested in becoming part of the project can contact Sarah Hoffman at 644-9673, or email shoffman@lglc.org .
