When we call upon our lake community for help, it answers. On November 4, we asked for help removing tons of trash and debris from our lake – including more than 900 tires that fell from docks – and more than 600 people came out to lend a hand. The result? Over 28,000 pounds of refuse removed!
After the cleanup, we set an ambitious goal of raising $56K, or $2 for every pound of trash we picked up on that fateful November 4, and I am completely thrilled to report that YOU DID IT! You helped us raise over $60,000!
To all the volunteers and donors reading this, we thank you immensely. Your help comes from near and far, and it really makes a difference to the health and vitality of New Jersey’s largest lake and our ability to deliver meaningful environmental, educational, community, and advocacy programs.
We have even more programs and events coming your way in 2024, initiatives that have all been made possible because of your support.
Here’s to you!

P.S. While we’ve turned the page on 2023 and this campaign, it is never too late or too early to give a gift that supports our work!
