After the amazing clean-up effort at Maple Cove last week, I know that some of you have the talent, skills, and tools necessary to help “RESTORE the JERSEY SHORE”.
I just saw this posted on another meet-up site that I belong to, and was thinking about heading down to Cattus Island Park this Saturday to help out. Let me know if any of you would be interested ….
• In the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, we all need to do our part to get New Jersey back on its feet.
Next Saturday, December 8, in towns across the Shore, there will be a massive volunteer effort to clean up and help wherever needed, as part of the Waves of Action Day for the Shore.
I hope you’ll join to help Shore communities get back on their feet.
Here are the details for a big clean-up in Toms River at the Cattus Island County Park.
DATE: Saturday, December 8
START TIME: 8:30 a.m.
CLEAN-UP: Cattus Island County Park in Toms River
LOCATION: 1170 Cattus Island Blvd, Toms River, NJ with a meet-up in the park’s parking lot.
WHAT YOU’LL DO: Cattus Island was a deposit for all sorts of garbage and debris from Hurricane Sandy, and it needs to be removed before the trails can open again. Volunteers will be removing trash and straightening out trails.
WHAT TO BRING: Boots and gloves would be useful. A rake would also be handy for straightening out the wood chips on the trails. This project is kid-friendly!
If anyone would like to help, please go to the following website to join.
Then please forward this to five friends and family and ask them to help out as well.
As we reach the one month anniversary of Superstorm Sandy, it’s clear we’ve made progress -- but there is still a lot of work to do. Let’s help our Shore communities get back on their feet.
Thank you for all that you do.
Environment New Jersey Interim Director
P.S. Please forward this to friends and family who want to help out Shore communities affected by Sandy, and please bring as many people as you can if you are able to volunteer.
