“Our two county clean ups provide a great opportunity to get out into the community and give back to our environment,” said Commissioner Director Robert M. Damminger. “It’s up to us to do our part to keep our planet safe. Come out and volunteer with your friends, neighbors and County Commissioners.”

The Scotland Run Park Clean Up will feature Gloucester County Naturalist and Rowan professor, Dr. Dan Duran, presenting how we can help regenerate the natural world starting with our own yards. Exhibitors will be present and will provide more information about how to be environmentally friendly.  

The Annual Earth Day County Wide Celebration will be hosted at Mantua’s Chestnut Branch Park this year. Attendees will receive their groups and clean up location upon arrival. Locations include: Mantua Twp., Pitman, Wenonah, Paulsboro, National Park and Greenwich Twp. This annual event is held in conjunction with the GCIA Clean Community Program to encourage residents to keep our county clean and environment safe.
