Raritan Headwaters Association

VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!

Want to help improve the state of the watershed? Then volunteer at Raritan Headwaters Association's 26th Annual Stream Clean Up.
 
To be held 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 16, the Stream Clean Up is our largest annual volunteer event. Last year, more than 1,000 volunteers pulled nearly 10 tons of trash from sites in 29 towns throughout the headwaters region, an assortment of garbage that ranged from tangled fishing line, plastic bags and bottles, to a Ford pickup tailgate, leaf blower, tires, and 300 pounds of scrap metal.

Pollution threatens quality drinking water not just in our neighborhoods, but all the way down to the Raritan River and Atlantic Ocean, impacting nearly 1.5 million New Jersey residents. By helping clean up the trash found alongside banks and in waterways, volunteers like you play a vital role in preserving not only that quality, but the health of our water and the life within it.

Who can volunteer? Everyone! Volunteer as an individual. Volunteer as a family. Volunteer as a business, civic, church or school group, at the site of your choice. You need only bring your enthusiasm! We'll provide the bags, gloves, t-shirts and snacks.

We can't do it without your help! Register here.

For more information, contact Angela Gorczyca at 908-234-1852, ext. 315 or agorczyca@raritanheadwaters.org.
