RED BANK, NJ: Red Bank Boy Scout Troop 67 led by troop Leader Mike Marier provided some much-needed TLC to Maple Cove Park last Saturday.

Located at the foot of Maple Avenue, the scouts chopped back invasive Japanese knotweed reclaiming four feet of lawn for the riverfront park that is a nature area where small-crafts can be launched onto the Navesink River.

“We’ve got a boy scout getting ready for his Eagle Scout project and he’s going to create a bulletin board where people can list kayaks for sale, or for people looking to purchase a kayak or canoe," said scout leader Marier.
