About the event
Wow, what a great turnout we had for last Saturday's cleanup in Hardwick. We're keeping the momentum going with another volunteer day on Saturday, February 18 in Mahwah.
The Land Conservancy of New Jersey is under contract to purchase 12 acres in Mahwah, a key property addition to our Ramapo Mountain Preserve that links the Ramapo Valley County Reservation all the way north to the New York State border. The Land Conservancy has preserved 6 properties totaling 107 acres in the Ramapo Mountains, two have been transferred to Bergen County as additions to one of the largest county parks in New Jersey and the remaining four parcels have become our Preserve. These properties have mature forests and are sacred to the Ramapough Lenape Nation.
We want to be able to complete the purchase of the 12 acre property in May, but we can’t do so until the debris on the property is removed. This is where you come. Our volunteers have helped The Land Conservancy clean up many different properties stretching from Mahwah all the way to the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Your help will be critical in helping us notch another conservation success!
Right now, we need your help to clean it up on Saturday, February 18 from 9am to noon. We need to remove debris from an abandoned home that is scattered over a wide area. We need about ten hearty volunteers to walk with us to gather the debris and put it in a truck that will be on the site so it can be removed.
