Thanks goes out to the Conservancy volunteers and supporters that made this spring's clean-up yet another fun and productive event. We came back to the heart of Brookdale Park - the Overlook - for some much needed spring cleaning: mud shoveling, branch clean up and rock moving. Adults and kids alike got muddy and pitched in during our continuing efforts to recover the buried, rock lined creek beds and small pools.
In addition to our dedicated community volunteers, our gratitude goes out to all of those that made this event possible...
- Essex County and the Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs for their ongoing support and for providing mulch and compost.
- Viacommunity for their donation of shovels, wheelbarrows and gloves.
- Conservancy supporters (you or people like you) that help make our volunteer programming possible. Supporter donations go towards landscape tools, supplies and refreshments for all of our hardworking volunteers.
The Conservancy's fall community clean up will take place on Saturday, September 12 from 10:00am till 12noon and will include some wildlife habitat enhancement plantings as well. We invite you to mark your calendars now and join us on the day!
