Skeetkill Marsh Cleanup

   The Meadowlands Conservation Trust is looking for help with its annual clean-up of this important tidal marsh — planned  for Thursday, March 26, from noon to 3 p.m.  Raindate is Thursday, April 2, noon – 3 p.m.

   The Skeetkill Creek Marsh in Ridgefield, photographed last week above in its drab winter attire, is a 16-acre restored wetlands area that is one of the Meadowlands unsung vest-pocket parks.

    If you can help clean up this treasure, wear work clothes, boots and gloves; trash bags and other equipment will be provided.

    Volunteers should gather at the kiosk near the park entrance on Pleasantview Terrace, Ridgefield.
