Volunteers Wanted for Middlesex County Conservation Corps
INDIVIDUALS ARE BEING SOUGHT for the Middlesex County Conservation Corps, whose mission is “to protect and preserve natural areas from misuse, polluters and the forces of nature” at the nearly 7,000 acres of Open Space owned and maintained by Middlesex County.
The Corps was proposed by the late Freeholder Director David B. Crabiel and is administered by the Middlesex County Department of Parks and Recreation.
Volunteer work will continue this spring at the various natural places throughout the county. Opportunities include tree plantings, trail work, invasive plant removal, trash clean-up and more. No special skills are required, although volunteer candidates should have an interest in being outdoors.
“Volunteers are an important part of helping to maintain our open spaces” said Freeholder Director Stephen J. “Pete” Dalina.
Volunteer days and times are flexible. Individuals and groups are welcome.
For a complete list of events, more information, and to obtain a volunteer application, contact Valerie Lysenko at the Middlesex County Parks and Recreation Department, (732) 745-3064.
