Patcong Creek Cleanup

May 19, 2019
09:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Linwood Public Works Building
550 Hamilton Avenue, Linwood

The public is welcome to participate in this annual cleanup of Patcong Creek!

The 14th Annual Patcong Creek Cleanup will be bigger and better than ever. For the fourth year, the Somers Point Green Team and the Patcong Creek Foundation Inc. are partnering with the Linwood Environmental Commission for this event.   

Cleanup sites and launches include: Somers Point-Mays Landing Road, Ocean Heights Avenue, Hamilton Avenue, and Poplar Avenue. Supplies will be provided (i.e. t-shirts, bags, gloves, pickers, etc.) by ACUA. Bring your canoes or kayaks to head out into the creek or help out on land to clean up the banks of the Patcong Creek. The Patcong Creek Foundation Inc. will provide boats to act as trash barges for the kayaks to unload full trash bags and to ferry land bound volunteers from place to place along the marsh. The Paddle Shack at Ocean Heights Avenue & Patcong Creek will once again offer the use of free kayaks for the event, all you need to do is pre-register. 

How to Get Involved:

  • Gather your friends, family, scout troop, faith group, business, club, team, neighborhood, youth group school or just yourself and make a commitment to improve your community.
  • All volunteers are asked to register in advance by completing an entry form which is available at Linwood City Hall and on the City of Linwood’s web site at www.linwoodcity.org. You can also register by calling Leigh Ann Napoli, Linwood City Clerk, at (609) 927-4108 or stop by Linwood City Hall to complete a registration form.
  • Then someone will call you back to discuss which section your group will be cleaning (on water or land). 
  • Arrive at 10 am at your designated area–rain or shine.
  • At 12 noon enjoy a free picnic and an awards ceremony at the Ocean Heights Marina located at 5001 Ocean Heights Avenue. Please feel free to bring Frisbees, soccer balls, kites, or other sports equipment.
