PALMYRA, NJ - In honor of International Biodiversity Day, Senator Troy Singleton will partner with the Palmyra Cove Nature Park (PCNP) for a clean-up along the Delaware River. The monthly “Serve with Senator Singleton” event will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019 and volunteers are asked to serve along with the Senator from 10:00am-12:00pm at thePalmyra Nature Cove, 1335 Route 73 South.
The Senator and a group of volunteers will lead a trash and debris collection along the shoreline in an effort to maintain healthy waters for the wildlife who depend on them. Volunteers may also help plant flowers used to attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. In the event of rain, volunteers will work on a project to help prevent bird-window strikes.
