Feb 25 – Clean up of Johnson Park (Piscataway) Take 2!

The LRWP and Middlesex County Parks are co-hosting a clean-up in Piscataway’s Johnson Park on Saturday February 25.

We will meet at 1030 River Road in Piscataway in the lobby of the County Parks Headquarters Office. There will be signs up to direct folks to the office where there will be a table set up with sign-in forms, trail maps for County open space areas, etc.

Volunteers should dress for the weather, and be prepared to be outdoors. Middlesex County will provide gloves and garbage bags. Parking and bathrooms are on-site.

Everything will have died back off the forest floor at this time of the year so it’s a great time to remove refuse – please let us know if you can make it.
