For our next cleanup, CJST will be partnering with the Lower Raritan Watershed Partnership in pulling 30 (or more!) tires out of the river bottom along Donaldson Park in Highland Park.
Both teams have been itching to get into this stretch of the river since last year! This is our last chance to get in at low tide before "water" season is over for 2019. So we invite
all our volunteers and friends to come out for an afternoon of "fun in the mud" pulling out tires and whatever else we may find!
The event begins at 12:30 pm so we can use low tide to our advantage. Please look for CJST or LRWP for sign-in and supplies and get ready for FUN IN THE MUD!!
When you enter Donaldson Park, bear right around the loop road. About a quarter of the way around the loop, make a right and continue to the end of the road. Park in the lot on the
left near the basketball courts.
If you have them, please wear tall boots or waders. We will need to rinse the mud out of the tires for proper recycling.
Please note that registration/RSVP is important so that we know what kind and how many supplies and snacks to bring. 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 and wet! We will be walking in the sticky mud most of the time. Please dress for the weather.
We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, snacks and water for volunteers.
So please come on out and help the river! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the Raritan wathershed with you!
