Thank you to everyone who attended yesterday’s POWWW Annual General Meeting & Hike.  We started out at the Cedar Lake Clubhouse in Denville and reviewed trail updates, noteworthy donations, and other organizational news over coffee and bagels.  We then hit the trails for a nice loop to the scenic Hog Pen and enjoyed some fall foliage along the way.

The next Protect Our Wetlands Water and Woods scheduled events are:

Jonathan’s Woods Trail Work Party

Meet at the Old Beach Glen Parking Lot as we re-route the birders loop in conjunction with the Morris County Park Commission.  Volunteers will help clear the trail of branches and trim invasive plants.

Every year on Giving Tuesday, people come together on Facebook to support causes they care about. This year, Facebook and PayPal will be matching up to $7 million in donations.  Fund matching begins precisely at 8AM EST and ends when matching funds are depleted.  Expect on funds matching depleted before 10AM
