Celebrate Earth Day with April 18 Stream Cleanup
Want to make a difference in the health and appearance of your watershed … in just three short hours?
Volunteer for Raritan Headwaters Association’s 30th annual Stream Cleanup on Saturday, April 18, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Mountain Valley Park in Mendham.
This year, the 30th anniversary of the RHA Stream Cleanup falls only a few days before the 50th anniversary of Earth Day – a day dedicated to supporting environmental protection and celebrating clean air, water and land.
“The Stream Cleanup is in keeping with the spirit of Earth Day,” said Rebekah Buczynski, RHA’s Stream Cleanup coordinator. “Not only does it beautify local stream corridors, it also protects drinking water supplies and prevents litter from washing downstream to the Raritan Bay and Atlantic Ocean, where it can become a hazard to marine life.”
Online registration is now open. To sign up, go to https://www.raritanheadwaters.org/stream-cleanup/ to view an interactive map of the 50-plus designated sites for this year’s cleanup, then click the registration link to reserve a place at your preferred site. The Mountain Valley Park in Mendham is listed as Site 30.
Volunteers who register by March 28 will receive work gloves and trash and recycling bags. Individuals and groups can still register up to April 4, but they may have to provide their own gloves.
