7. WATCH FOR POP-UP Shoreline Clean-ups. Date and Location to be announced. We’ll send out emails. Start time will be 9:00 am to 11:00 pm. We’re trying something different this summer. Pop-up clean-ups are for those who don’t work weekdays and want to get those nasty little corners done that don’t warrant a full official clean-up. If you are interested email us.
8. Our next official clean-up will be Sunday, August 27 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm at Rutkowski Park. We’ll be working with Hackensack Riverkeeper. They often bring canoes and serve pizza at the end of the clean-up. Dress for dirty work. Tools, garbage bags, gloves, snacks and water will be provided. Please help keep the boardwalk park looking good.
Be sure to tell your friends to join the Bayonne Nature Club! Join by participating in a bird walk, meeting, shoreline clean-up, planting the butterfly garden and/or displaying your photos at the library with us. We charge no dues. We are nature enthusiasts and activists.
