On September 10 Allegheny Defense Project (ADP), and Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) will work with state surveyors to walk and mark the boundary between the Allegany State Park in New York, and the Allegheny National Forest in Pennsylvania.
Date: 10 September 2011.
Location: NY Allegany State Park Administration Building (in the Red House Area of the Park)

Our mission will be to continue to locate the 15 granite boundary markers that were placed in 1888 at one mile intervals to demarcate the Pennsylvania – New York state boundary. We will also be marking the boundary line with new signs and survey paint and tape.For more information about the project see Walking the Line
