Stream Cleanups

Thank you so much to all of the amazing volunteers that came out to help us clean our communities! This year may have been the most important in our 11 years of organizing cleanups in central New Jersey. Millions of people showed up to march for science, for climate change, and millions more lent a hand to cleaning their communities. Regardless of how you participated, you helped give a voice to our planet.

 

To protect clean water and healthy habitats it takes the combined efforts of citizens, volunteers, neighbors, and families working side-by-side to make a difference. The Watershed Association works with residents, municipal, county, and state leaders, and local groups on a wide variety of initiatives and actions to plan smart, grow community and preserve and protect our natural resources.
