This weekend, area residents will take to the water as part of two individual cleanup events in an effort to keep the Navesink River beautiful and litter-free.
Those who are proud to call Red Bank and Rumson home based on the rivers picturesque expanse are asked to give a couple hours worth of time and exertion in order to protect it.
Both events are rain or shine, except in the case of thunder and lightning. All volunteers must wear closed-toed shoes; unlike a beach cleanup, volunteers may have to walk through bushes and shallow parts of the river to retrieve garbage.
