From our friends doing similar work in the Passaic River- Repost from @fitzgeraldlabnjcu using @RepostRegramApp - Just a small taste of all the #plastics that came out of our #passaicriver sampling yesterday! Not shown are all the straws, large pieces of plastic and styrofoam, bottles and caps, cigarette and cigar butts, and chip bags that clogged our #mantatrawl . #sayno2plastic #banthebag #refusethestraw A huge thanks to @nynjbaykeeper for use of the trawl!
It’s a beautiful day here in Branchburg NJ, where the North Branch and South Branch of the Raritan River join as one forming the Raritan River. This area was called "Tucca-Ramma-Hacking" by the Lenape meaning the flowing together of water. Happy #worldriversday #waterislife #raritanriver #cleanstreams
Look closely, you will see the men and women of @jpmorgan removing invasive autumn olive from our meadow. This project never seems to end but, today this group of amazing volunteers made a huge impact on protecting native habitat. They also tackled supply bins for stream clean ups! #thankyou #volunteers #CSR #nativehabitat #meadows #streamcleanup
A field of goldenrod, mountain mint, asters and native grasses leading down to a wetlands area here at our preserve. Pollinators attentively working the fall blooms. What a beautiful way to start the week. #landpreservation #meadows #nativeplants #habitat #getoutside #njtrails
Thank you to our friend @chfnjplants Cooper’s Hollow Plants for helping us with our volunteer appreciation gifts. These Eastern redbuds will add color and texture to the home landscape while offering food and shelter for wildlife and water retention during storm events. Come see him at our Old Fashioned Country Fair on October 7, 11:30-4:30. #nativetrees #landscapedesign #volunteergifts #conservation
