This area is tended to regularly by members of the Shade Tree Advisory Board, and extra hands are needed on May 12 to help pick up litter and debris, and clear away invasive species so that native plants have room to grow next spring.

Volunteers should dress to get muddy and dirty.

Any individual or group can join Adopt-A-Park and help preserve Union County’s 36 public parks. For more information visit Adopt-A-Park online at ucnj.org/parks or call 908-789-3683.
