Clean-up in Holgate at the
Forsythe Wildlife Refuge
March 17, 2012
like to thank everyone that came out to support the
beach clean-up at the Forsythe Wildlife Refuge on Long
Beach Island. We had a lot of people volunteer their
time on this project, filling a 20 yd. dumpster and
could have filled another 20 yd. dumpster or two.
Miss Virginia Rettig the Forsythe Wildlife Manager was
grateful to all that came out to do this clean-up. The
New Jersey Beach Buggy Assn. was glad to have headed up
the beach clean-up for the first time in 50 years at the
would also like to thank the women of the beach buggy
assn., for handling the serving of coffee and donuts
along with a beach buggy gourmet lunch of hot dogs,
beans and chocolate chip cookies made possible by a
donation from Greg O’Connel of Merchantville Fishing
Thanks to the many volunteers from different groups like
the Long Beach Island Fishing Club, Barnegat Bay
Heavers, Barrington Fishing Club, the local Fire
Department, N.J.B.B.A members and all other Associations
that came to help. We estimated around 100 volunteers to
help with this first time project.
