DENVILLE, NJ - About 20 people braved chilly, damp weather on April 22 to clean litter and perform maintenance work at Jonathan's Woods in Denville.

The work was part of the annual Protect Our Wetlands, Water and Woods (POWWW) Rid Litter Day. The organization provided volunteers with trash bags, gloves, coffee and bagels as well as T-shirts.

"We had a nice turnout," said POWWW's Dave Binder. He said the helpers not only removed litter but also set up off-road vehicle blockades, trimmed unwanted invasive species including wild rose and barberry and did work to help prevent trail erosion.
