If you’re getting this e-mail then you are someone that cares about the Shark River Watershed. The Shark River Cleanup Coalition is embarking on an exciting project with the InfoAge Science and History Museum to open the InfoAge Shark River Nature Center, but we’re going to need some help to make it happen.
We’re going to be sending out more requests in the future to let everyone know what we’re up to but here’s what we need right now.
InfoAge is open on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 1 to 5 pm and we are currently staffing the center on Wednesdays but we could use some help on the weekends. If you could spare a few hours to help us get this project off the ground please contact us and we’ll get you started. No experience is required except a love of our watershed!
We can’t wait to hear from you,
Shark River Cleanup Coalition

Storm water runoff is a major source of contaminated water entering the river. This water is contaminated with fecal bacteria, floatable trash, oil and other fluids from cars, lawn chemicals, soaps, silt and anything else that comes in contact with the rain.
Water suppliers provide reports that tell where drinking water comes from, & what contaminants may be in it.
