For our last big cleanup of 2019, CJST will again be partnering with the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership to clean the Green Brook floodplain behind the Green Brook Regional Center on Sunday,
December 8th. We have cleaned this area several times but the river keeps bringing more trash from upstream! (An issue that is slowly being addressed.) Many thanks to Green Brook Township for
providing supplies and trash disposal. We'll need a few volunteers in waders to help clear the blockages but there's also enough to do in the floodplain for everyone!
If you're sad that the cleanup season is ending, or you still need volunteer hours, or you just want to see your CJST friends again, this is the event for you! There is no shortage of trash so we
need all our cleanup volunteers!
The event begins at 10:00 AM and will end around noon. We will meet at the Green Brook Regional Center at:
275 Greenbrook Road, Green Brook, NJ 08812
Please park in the lot on the right side of the building (if you're looking at it from the road). Come on out and join us for sign up, instructions and safety...and enjoy some light breakfast
provided by Green Brook Township!
Please note that registration/RSVP is important so that we know what kind and how many supplies and refreshments to bring and set up. This is especially true if you are bringing a larger group.
1. Bring along your family and friends! It's going to be a really fun and great day! The more junk we find the more rewarding the experience!
2. Wear sturdy footwear and clothing you don't mind getting dirty! Please dress for the weather and in layers since you will get warm while cleaning.
4. We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, sunscreen, bug spray, light breakfast, and water for volunteers.
5. Please wear waders if you would like to help in-stream. The water in most places here is not very deep.
So come on out! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the watershed with you!
Please contact Jens Riedel at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or if you plan on bringing a larger group.
