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.

Note that it is not necessary to be a member in order to make our acquaintance.
Shore Group Happenings:
We have had several cleanups with a coalition with Monmouth University, all the towns on the Whale Pond Brook watershed, and the N.J. Friends of Clearwater. Our 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. We have held several hikes along part of the watershed and have shown the documentary film, A Chemical Reaction, which chronicles the harmful effects of common lawn and garden pesticides and one town's fight to ban them.
Help Needed for Cleanups:
If you would like to participate in cleanups of our local waterways, please contact Laura Bagwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. In this vital effort, our Group joins forces with the Navesink Swimming River Group which, since 2002, has removed more than 20 tons of debris from our local banks and streams.
The general meetings of Sierra Club Jersey Shore group and NJF Clearwater are hosted by Brookdale Community College Environmental Club to encourage BCC students to be involved in statewide and national debates on the importance of strong environmental regulations. At the Lincroft meeting, a cash buffet begins at 6:00 p.m. and presentations begin at 6:30 p.m.
To get to Brookdale, take Parkway Exit 109 to Route 520 West (Newman Springs Road, which becomes E. Main Street at the Lincroft campus). Take the traffic circle into the campus and follow the signs to the Warner Student Life Center (SLC), where the meeting will be in the Twin Lights 1 Room. Use parking lot 7. As you walk towards the building complex, Warner will be on your left. If lot 7 is full, use parking lots 5 or 6. A map is at BCC campus map
Shore Group Ex Comm meetings are held at Luigi's in Lincroft at 6:15 on the second Tuesday of the month, excluding July, August and December.
