On Saturday, March 25 SBB volunteers got the Herring Point section of the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge even cleaner. We gather on the last Saturday in March each year.

Twelve outdoor enthusiasts looked out the window instead of listening to the weatherman and came to our annual Herring Point cleanup in Brick Township next to Traders Cove, Saturday, March 25. Herring Point is the northernmost point in the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge.

Each year on the last Saturday in March we gather to pull trash out of the woods while both the leaves and the bugs are not yet out.

We are grateful to the Township of Brick Department of Public Works, who provide the dumpster that makes the event work. We didn’t fill it, but the bottom of the dumpster was completely covered with shingles, wood, old bedsprings, old tires, cans, bottles, and other stuff that the woods do not need any more than does your yard.

A BIG THANK YOU to all our wonderful volunteers:
