The Sierra Club is a non-profit member-supported, public interest organization that promotes conservation of the natural environment by influencing public policy decisions--legislative, administrative, legal, and electoral. When you join the Sierra Club in Monmouth County, New Jersey, you automatically become a member of the Jersey Shore Group. Note that it is not necessary to be a member in order to make our acquaintance.
Shore Group Happenings: 
Whale Pond Cleanups: We continue our cleanups with a coalition with Monmouth University, all the towns in the Whale Pond Brook watershed, and the NJ Friends of Clearwater. Our long-range goal is to clean up the watershed and educate local residents about the detrimental effects of lawn fertilizers and storm water run-off, and the importance of integrated pest management. Help explore, enjoy and protect this beautiful watershed.  Our Sierra dynamo heading the clean-up of Whale Pond is Conservation Chair Faith Teitelbaum at faithtei@aol.com.
 
Help Needed for Other Cleanups: If you would like to participate in cleanups of our other local waterways, please contact another dynamo, Laura Bagwell at l.bagwell3@verizon.net. Laura focuses on the Red Bank area watersheds. In this effort, we work with the Navesink Swimming River Group which, since 2002, has removed more than 20 tons of debris from our local banks and streams. Alas, pollution never ends; we are in constant need of volunteers.
