A big thank-you from the Freeholder Board goes out to the great group of 32 Adopt-a-Park volunteers from Morgan Stanley, who spent their Thursday this week out at the Deserted Village of Feltville in Union County’s Watchung Reservation.

They spread mulch, removed invasive plants, repaired a split rail fence, and fixed erosion problems along a nearby trail. To top it off, they cleaned windows, floors and exhibit cases in the Church-Store building at the village.

Morgan Stanley also provided a generous donation that will go to purchase tools, herbicide and new split rail fencing.
