On the morning of Saturday, March 26, twenty-five volunteers helped bring trash out of the Herring Point section of the Forsythe Refuge in Brick. Check SBB’s calendar for further cleanup opportunities.
It’s informal and fun.
On the morning of Saturday, March 26, twenty-five volunteers from seven Ocean County towns helped bring trash out of the Herring Point section of the Forsythe Refuge in Brick.
It was a wonderful spring day — cool but not chilly, with golden sunshine. The birds of spring were present: Osprey, red-winged blackbirds, cardinals, chickadees among them. Soon the spring peepers should make themselves heard.
We hauled enough junk out to fill more than half a dumpster. Our goal each year is to haul out more trash than the other kind of people haul in. By returning on the last Saturday in March every year, we are succeeding in doing this.
The seven towns represented were Bay Head, Brick, Dover, Jackson, Manchester, Mantoloking, and Stafford.
Our stalwarts were:
Carly Coughlin – MATES Program
Maria DeLeon – MATES Program

Chris Pancilla – USFWS
* Hardest worker.
