We Need YOU for the April 2019 Ewing Stream Cleanup!

Calling all Friends and Neighbors: Let’s work together to show the West Branch of the Shabakunk Creek some much needed TLC.

Mayor Bert Steinman, the Ewing Green Team, and The Watershed Institute have partnered to offer a Ewing Township stream cleanup in honor of Earth Day 2019. Volunteer with friends and neighbors to help remove trash, litter, and debris from the West Branch of the Shabakunk Creek.

Over the past twelve years, Mercer County cleanup efforts have helped remove more than 105,00 pounds of garbage with the help of 5,400 volunteers! Stream Cleanups are a great way to get outside, meet new people, help improve the scenic beauty of our area, and improve our wildlife habitat. Volunteers will receive a Watershed Stream Cleanup t-shirt as a thank you for their efforts.

We will meet at The Home Depot located at 1621 N. Olden Ave, Ewing, NJ at 9:00am on Saturday, April 6, 2019. If driving, please park in the section of parking lot located closest to Olden Avenue. The cleanup will run for approximately two hours.

This is a rain or shine event. Be sure to dress for the weather and wear long pants and closed-toe shoes or boots. Gloves and bags will be provided.

All are welcome! If you plan to bring a large group (10+ people) please email Erin Stretz at estretz@thewatershed.org to ensure enough supplies are on hand.
