Simple and as short as I can, the Wallkill River is a heavily impacted river with multiple human influences and we are pushing for a safe, clean, swimmable, fishable river. Last year the Wallkill River Watershed Alliance hosted a Tire Pull in an effort to affect a change we can control directly. We were very successful pulling 97 tires from the river. Sadly, we were at a location where there are still more tires, possibly 100+ and we’re returning again this year on July 14th to remove as many as we can. On the scope of an entire watershed, this is a small gesture considering we have seen many, many tires in multiple places along the 88 miles of our river.
