Fairfield Fall Cleanup Day – Nov 12 (Rain Date Nov 19)
November 12 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Volunteer Cleanup Day
The flooding caused by Hurricane Ida affected many natural areas adjacent to our local rivers. They were inundated with the trash carried downstream. While GSWA staff were sampling the water quality along the Passaic River in Fairfield, we observed a large quantity of trash that had been caught up in the trees in the flood plain in this area.
GSWA, working together our local NJ AmeriCorps Watershed Ambassador, is organizing a cleanup day to ensure that this area gets the needed attention. We need your help! Come out and join us in cleaning up this beautiful area of the Passaic River. The cleanup location on Nov 12th is the boat launch site at the end of Camp Ln, in Fairfield. The cleanup will run from 10 – 12 PM. We are asking people to wear masks and it will be muddy so you should wear appropriate shoes that can get muddy and maybe even wet.
