HOT-TOPIC_03After a winter’s break, an initiative dubbed ‘Rally for the Navesink‘ to reduce levels of fecal coliform in our beautiful river resumes tonight with a community-welcome meeting in Fair Haven.

On the agenda: oyster beds and boat waste.

Organized by Clean Ocean Action and a boatload of environmental groups and government agencies, the meeting’s agenda includes presentations by the New York/New Jersey Baykeeper on efforts to restore oyster beds in the Navesink, and another by a public health expert on safe disposal of human waste from boats.

The rally is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Viola L. Sickles School on Willow Street in Fair Haven. (Photo by John T. Ward. Click to enlarge)
