Please join CJST for a cleanup along the Green Brook upstream of a section we did in May 2016. We will be cleaning around Thomae Park and Shepherd Avenue in Bridgewater and the woods along about a half mile of the Green Brook. If conditions allow, some volunteers may wade into the brook to remove plenty of tires, plastic trash cans, floatable and other debris. We will be partnering with Bridgewater Township, who has been helping CJST since the very beginning in 2013.
The event begins at 8:00 AM at Thomae Park in Bridgewater (use "Thomae Park" or 305 Nagle Street, Bound Brook as the closest address). Come on out and join us for sign up, instructions and safety...and enjoy some breakfast on us.
Please note that registration/rsvp is important so that we know what kind and how many supplies and refreshments to bring and set up.
1.Bring along a friend or 5! It's going to be a really fun and great day! The more junk we find the more rewarding the experience! Meetup is 8:00 AM at Thomae Park (near 305 Nagle Street, Bound Brook, NJ 08805). Parking available in the gravel lot or along Nagle Street.
2. If you plan to wade in the river be prepared to get WET!...and DIRTY! So dress accordingly. Wear sturdy footwear and clothing you don't mind getting wet and dirty! No flip-flops! No canoes on this cleanup. If you have a fishing net you dont mind using to scoop up floating plastic bottles, bring it!
3. If you are staying on land wear sturdy footwear and clothing you don't mind getting a little to very dirty...depending on what you might find...and how deep it's buried!
CJST will provide the rest! Garbage bags, work gloves, tools, life jackets, breakfast and water for volunteers.
So come on out! We look forward to restoring this small piece of the wathershed with you!
