Divide &  Conquer! - South Branch Raritan Cleanup 

September 14, 2019 -  9:00am - 2:00pm (-ish)

For our next cleanup, CJST will re-visit some of the inaugural stretches of the South Branch that started the organization in 2013. We'll be dividing into two teams for this cleanup so we can get a longer river section done. So we invite all our volunteers and friend to come out for a morning of fun and exercise pulling out tires and whatever else we may find!
 
The event begins at 9:00 AM. Please meet at the former flea market site in Neshanic Station next to the Elm Street Bridge.  Thre is a new gravel parking area surrounded by wood barriers on the left side after cross the bridge.  Use 150 Elm Street, Branchburg, NJ 08853 as the closest address for your GPS. Look for the CJST truck and trailers. The flea market will be taking place across the street.  Please be aware there are height and weight restrictions on this bridge so you may need to enter from the other side of town.  Join us for sign up, instructions and safety and enjoy some breakfast on us! From here, we will split into two teams.  One team will start at the meet up spot and clean to Clawson Avenue in Hillsborough.  The other group will shuttle to Clawson Avenue and clean to Studdiford Drive. This will be a mostly in-river event and you will get wet. Due to heavy vegetation, any land cleanup would be limited to the area surrounding the meet up location and along the river trail. Volunteers who don't want to get wet can assist the river team with emptying boats and shuttling volunteers. We encourage volunteers to bring their own canoes or flat bottom boats if they have them.
 
Please note that registration/RSVP is important so that we know what kind and how many supplies and food to bring. This is especially true if you are bringing a larger group.
 
Volunteer Instructions:
 
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 (closed toes are recommended) and clothing you don't mind getting dirty and wet! We will be walking in the river most of the time in waist high water or less but there are some deeper sections. Life vests will be provided. Hats and sunscreen are recommended. Keep in ind that there will also be sections with thick aquatic vegetation although these can generally be bypassed.
 
We will provide garbage bags, work gloves, tools, breakfast, 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!
