**UNFORTUNATELY, BECASUE OF LIMITATIONS ON GROUP ACTIVITIES DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS, WE HAVE TO CANCEL THIS CLEANUP.**
CJST will be partnering with the Lower Rarian Watershed Partnership on a cleanup along the South River in Old Bridge on Saturday, March 21st. This is a tidal area which brings in lots of
floatables and there are a lot of tires (can we hit 100?!). Plenty to do for everyone!
The event will begin at 12:30 PM and will end around 3:30 PM so we can time it with low tide. We are still finalizing the meet up location. The cleanup will be along Kearney Avenue in Old
Bridge but we will likely meet at the local elementary school as Kearney Ave is a very rough road and has limited parking. Stay tuned for updates.
Come on out and join us for sign up, instructions and our safety talk. We'll then fan out along the South River floodplain.
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. We will not be going in the water with
canoes but there may be wet and muddy areas since some of the work will be in the tidal zone. Please wear muck boots or waders if you have them.
4. We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, sunscreen, bug spray, and water for volunteers.
So come on out! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the watershed with you!
Please contact Jens Riedel at email@example.com if you have questions or if you plan on bringing a larger group.
