Please join CJST for a very special river cleanup bringing us from the Island Farm Fish Weir at the Raritan & Millstone confluence to the Queens Bridge In Bound Brook! Our goal for this event is to clean a roughly 1+ mile stretch of the main stem of the Raritan River and its banks between Bridgewater and Franklin. Before we get started though we will enjoy a short paddle from the launch area down to the Island Farm Fish Weir where we will get started.
We went through this area last year and it needs our help once again!
The event begins at 8:00 am. So 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 efreshments to bring and set up...especially life jackets if you'd like to wear one for the IN-river team.
1. Bring along a friend or family member 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 near Handle With Care Express on Railroad Ave in Bound Brook (Right by the Queens Bridge on the Raritan River)
2. If you are in the river be prepared to get WET...and DIRTY! So dress accordingly. Wear footwear and clothing you don't mind getting wet and dirty...and sunscreen! And if you have a canoe that you'd like to bring along please feel free and let us know...the more cargo space the better!
3. If you are on a land team wear 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...and sunscreen!
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 beautiful river with you!
See you out on the river!
