Locals with some time to spare this Saturday are encouraged to help Comptons Creek recover from Superstorm Sandy.
The Bayshore Regional Watershed Council and New York-New Jersey Baykeepers will be leading clean up efforts at the Port Monmouth waterway from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., according to organizers.
“Despite what you might see or hear in the media, there is still much more work to be done!” reads the online callout for volunteers posted by Joe Reynolds, co-chair of the BRWC.
Volunteers can park along Broadway, which is located between the wetlands and creek. Those who plan to participate are encouraged to wear “long pants, sturdy shoes and gloves,” according to organizers.
“Join us as we restore the health of our creeks and waterways after Superstorm Sandy,” reads the post by Reynolds.
