Earth Keepers in Allaire State Park
Our team of Earth Keepers work to revitalize and beautify parks, gardens and green spaces throughout New Jersey. Volunteers help maintain and improve such areas through a variety of tasks related to environmental restoration. Each month task change based on what is needed at the time, but will include the removal of invasive species, collecting debris and fallen branches and general maintenance of the park.
No experience is necessary and please note this project will occur rain or shine. Only regsiter if you plan to attend in either weather condition.
Allaire State Park is probably best known for its historic 19th-century iron making town, Allaire Village, and its antique steam trains on the Pine Creek Railroad. The Manasquan River, which winds through the park, attracts canoeists and fishermen. The river’s floodplain provides habitat for over 200 species of wildflowers, trees and plants as well as habitat for birds and other wildlife. Hikers, mountain bikers and horseback riders enjoy the many trails in the park.
