In the long run, Dudzinski hopes to enhance the Van Buren trail and add to what Camillus already has.
"To me, it's like a little gem in the town and if we can get it opened up, I think people would really enjoy it," Dudzinski said.
The clean out does not involve cleaning out the canal and the Van Buren Department of Public Works will help by picking up the collected brush. Anyone who wants to get involved should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with Ronald Dudzinski in the subject line. There are also adopt-a-trail opportunities available at the Van Buren town offices at 7575 Van Buren Road, Baldwinsville.
