Volunteers Needed for Sept 17th NJ Delaware River Cleanup

Join in for a morning of giving back along the Delaware!

Delaware River Cleanup 2021The Delaware River Greenway Partnership, the NJ Clean Communities programs in Hunterdon and Mercer County, and the NJ Park Service have once again joined forces to clean up the litter along the shore of the Delaware River. They are seeking volunteers to lend a hand in their efforts. A clean up day is scheduled for September 17th.  This year's cleanup will include many new areas along the river ranging from Holland Twp. in Hunterdon County all the way to Duck Island at the Abbott Marshlands in Hamilton! In addition to shoreline cleanups, there will be one boat-based cleanup as well. 

Last year was particularly challenging following the ravages of Tropical Storm Ida. Members of the Ewing Green Team represented Ewing at the Scudder Falls site, as well as other community members.  The fifteen total volunteers picked up 25 bags of trash with an estimated weight of appr. 1,000 lbs.  The Delaware is heavily used and offers so much to community members from drinking water to recreational opportunities.  It offers as well, habitat for hundreds of species,  This is a great way of contributing to its lasting beauty.  We hope you will join in for another great turn out at any of the locations selected. 

Advance registration is required by visiting https://delawarerivergreenwaypartnership.org.  The cleanup will include new areas along the river as well, ranging from Holland Twp in Hunterdon County all the way to Duck Island at the Abbott Marshlands in Hamilton!

The Scudder Falls area in Ewing Township will once again be the focus of the efforts in Ewing.  When registering for the cleanup, volunteers can select from 17 locations for the area most convenient for them including a boat-based cleanup at the Bucks County Giving Pond.
