DELAWARE TOWNSHIP, NJ (HUNTERDON)–Join the Delaware Township Environmental Commission and Bull’s Island Recreation Area for a towpath cleanup between Prallsville Mill and Bull’s Island Recreation Area in Hunterdon County.  Early Spring is a great time to pick up litter before the grass and brambles are growing. Due to COVID-19 we are asking for groups between the sizes of 4-8 people to adopt a cleanup area along the D&R Canal and Bulls Island. The groups must be comprised of people who have already been spending time together such as family groups, scout groups, church groups, sport teams, etc. Supplies such as gloves, bags and pickers will be provided.

Every group must have a designated leader who would be responsible for registration and be the point of contact for day of the event.  Each group will work in a separate location and registration times will be staggered for social distancing purposes and masks are required. There will be a limit of 6 groups so register early!
