BREAKING NEWS: Potters Beach on St. Lawrence River Temporary Closes Due To COVID-19 Cases

In light of the recent development of COVID-19 cases in Clayton and the surrounding communities, and out of an abundance of caution, the Thousand Islands Land Trust (TILT) has made the difficult decision to temporarily close Potters Beach Preserve on Grindstone Island to the public until further notice.

TILT will be communicating directly with Jefferson County Public Health, along with state and local officials and authorities, and continue to monitor this situation. TILT will provide the general public with a closure update on Monday July, 20.

While this is an unprecedented situation, the health and safety of our River community is of the highest importance to TILT.
