VIDEO: New Jersey Audubon Plants Trees in Mannington TownshipPosted:
MANNINGTON TOWNSHIP - The New Jersey Audubon is seeking volunteers to help plant almost 3,000 trees in South Jersey.
The Audubon Society is asking for volunteers to plant 2,800 native trees in an area adjacent to Mannington Meadows, on the east side of county route 540. The project is part of an effort to preserve wildlife, as well as protect Mannington Meadows from erosion and stormwater runoff.
"We're planting about 3,000 trees on about 7 acres," said Jean Lynch, Stewardship Project Director. "The idea is to create some more wildlife habitat in this wildlife management area and also to take steps to improve water quality in the adjacent wetlands."
Those interested in volunteering should wear work clothes, boots, work gloves, sun protection, binoculars, and bring a water bottle are recommended. Refreshments will be provided.
