Our Next Cleanup Event is Saturday June 25th!

Throwback on the South Branch

The Central Jersey Stream Team is so very proud to announce our next event on Saturday June 25th! After venturing away from the Raritan for our last event, CJST is excited to revisit the very first stretch we ever cleaned way back in 2013! We will be re-cleaning the final 3+ miles of the South Branch of the Raritan just like we did in our inaugural event!  For this event CJST will be working over two zones between Branchburg and Hillsborough. As we've pulled tires over the years we've learned that the contour of the river bottom changes a bit and uncovers more treasures...and a flood and minimal dumping deposits more treasures as well. So we're going back to where it all started on the South Branch of the Raritan for a fun day on our favorite river!  

 

And the weather is nice and warm now so it's time to pull out the old water shoes and hop on in...unless you'd prefer to stay on dry land! We will have teams working in the river as well as on land so dress for whichever team you prefer (let's get wet, muddy and dirty!). Our meeting point is 510 Old York Road in Branchburg just east of North Branch River Road at the bridge near the confluence of the North and South branches of the Raritan River.  Meet up is at 8:00am for breakfast and sign in. Breakfast, refreshments and lunch as well as gloves and tools will be provided. 

 

This is an exciting opportunity to work on the South Branch of the Raritan River...and everything we pull we save from entering Raritan Bay and eventually the Atlantic Ocean! 

 

 If you have any questions at all please email Joe at joseph.david@cjstreamteam.org

We look forward to having you join us for a very special event! So come on out "River Warriors!"
