One of our favorite spots in the Meadowlands is the Kearny Marsh, and we like to see the trails groomed and free of trash.
That's why, for the third year in a row, the Meadowlands Commission, Bergen County Audubon Society and the Northern New Jersey Geocachers are sponsoring a two-hour clean-up of the marsh, from 10 a.m. to noon, on Sunday, June 3.
We could use your help!
Details follow. (Note: We probably will not have the use of canoes this year — sorry!)
Sunday, June 3, 10 a.m.
Kearny Marsh Cleanup with the NJMC, BCAS and Northern New Jersey Geocachers
As part of National Trail Day Weekend, the N.J. Meadowlands Commission is sponsoring a two-hour clean-up at the Kearny Marsh. We will clean the trails by foot. We’ll meet 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), or you can also meet us at the visitors’ parking lot at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst by 9:40 a.m. and we can carpool.
We’ll supply trash bags and water, but bring your own weed clippers and work gloves. The cleanup is co-sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society and Northern New Jersey Cachers, a geocaching group. Waste Management is providing the Dumpster.
Check meadowblog.net for last-minute updates and weather advisories. You will have to sign a standard liability release that is good for NJMC/BCAS events throughout the year. To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at email@example.com or 201-230-4983.
