Sat., April 20, 9:30 – 11:30 a.m.

In honor of Earth Day, the N.J. Meadowlands Commission and the Bergen County Audubon Society are doing a cleanup of the Mill Creek Marsh walking trails on Saturday, April 20, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  

This beautiful 207-acre marsh and park had several downed trees and lots of washed-up debris from Hurricane Sandy, and we want to remove the remaining brush and downed branches. We’ll also clean up any litter brought in with the tides.

Participants must wear work gloves and protective clothing and footwear and sign a liability release. The release will be available on Saturday, and is also ready for download now (see below). Participants must be at least 16 years old; 16- and 17-year-old participants must have the liability release signed by a parent or guardian.  For more information, e-mail the NJMC’s Jim Wright at or call him at 201-469-7349.

    Thank you evryone for your efforts regarding the Mill Creek Marsh. Although it has been noticed that the gate has not been opening at 7:00 am on Saturday’s. Many people enjoy the Marsh and are unable to access the trail. Can you please ensure the gate is open on Saturday’s. Much appreciated. Thank you so much.
