Stream Cleanups

This Earth Day may be the most important in our 10 years of organizing cleanups in central New Jersey. Millions of people will show up to march for science, for climate change, and millions more will lend a hand to cleaning their communities. Regardless of how you participate, you can help give a voice to our planet. It’s Your Water – Your Environment – Your Voice.

 

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.

We are starting our Earth Day on April 8 at the Watershed Reserve by planting 900 trees. We hope you can lend a hand for one or all of our weekend Earth Day activities!
