9th ANNUAL PINE BARRENS CLEANUP at WHARTON STATE FOREST



9 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1 more to go and we've all done this for a DECADE!!!!!!!!

Come and take part in the largest one-day volunteer event at Wharton State Forest in New Jersey. On Oct 24nd 2010 at 9:00 AM the 9th annual PINE BARRENS 4 WHEEL DRIVE CLEANUP will begin with a sign up at the Atsion Ranger stations [where raffle tickets will aslo se sold to help defray the cost of wings] and conclude with the raffle and wing fest at the Pic a Lilly restaurant on rt 206 [they always help us out too]

Last year 200 men, women and children collected two 30 cubic yard dumpsters full of trash while making new friends and enjoying the wonders of the pines. While doing this they worked up a voracious appetite that was satiated by hundreds of wings donated by clubs, businesses and individuals. Before leaving there was a drawing where gift certificates, a gold music record award, books, under hood microwaves [big shout out to IKEA] and tons of other stuff were generously donated by members and their businesses. LIke the past 7 years everyone had a great time and said they couldn’t wait till next year.

We are now soliciting past participants, 4 wheel drive clubs and local and national business’ to contribute time and resources to make this year’s event another overwhelming success.

This as a great opportunity to showcase a partnership for keeping our state lands clean and our right to transverse them unhindered. The rangers and staff at Wharton have embraced us and lend their time and support to help us have a safe and fun time. Terry at the ranger station has been a godsend to us and NOW MORE than ever the state of NJ park and forest system needs our help.

ALSO REMEMBER TOYS FOR TOTS..

Last year we collected a lot of stuff for needy children for the holidays at the sign up spot at the Atsion ranger station!!!!!!!


Please be a part of this worthwhile event. Contact Michael Tarsia to see how your family, organization or business can contribute to this worthy cause.

Thank you in advance for your dedication to a beautiful, clean and accessible state forest system.

I have been asked by Mike the organizer of this event , to help make next years clean-up which will be the 10th annual clean-up the biggest and best event yet. And to help show the anti-access folks the we the OHV community can and do respect the land we use..

So lets see if NJJC can impress as we usually do when we do something as a club...
