We plan to clean and trim the marsh's trail by foot and clean the marsh by canoe. All are welcome to participate.
The clean-up begins at the northeast corner of the Gunnell Oval off Schuyler Avenue at 10 a.m. (directions are on meadowblog.net in the left-hand column).
The NJMC is supplying trash bags and water, but bring your own weed clippers and gloves. We’ll also provide canoes, paddles and life jackets.
The Meadowlands Commission has spent $25 million to remediate the landfill and to prevent it from polluting the marsh anymore.
The marsh is home to moorhens and herons and coots and grebes and bitterns and swallows. The views of the marsh and New York City skyline are awesome.
