Bass River Township — Join Bass River State Forest staff and Outdoor Club of South Jersey volunteers on Saturday, June 1 from 9:45 a.m. to 1 p.m. to celebrate the American Hiking Society’s 27th Annual National Trails Day with forest work projects.

Efforts will be focused on the Ballanger Creek Habitat Enhancement Site on Route 9 in Bass River Township.

Ballanger Creek trails provide access through a restored meadow, a pine/oak woodland and along Ballanger Creek and its historic cranberry bogs. Volunteers will be spreading wood mulch along a trail, trimming back trails and installing a gate.

According to organizers, this is a great project for scouts and students to get community service credit. Volunteers should bring gloves, clippers, water, sunscreen and insect repellent. Forest staff will provide hot dogs and chips back at the forest office at 1 p.m.

Receive directions when you register, or join a caravan over from the forest office, at 762 Stage Road, Bass River Township, at 9:40 a.m. Register by contacting the office at 609-296-1114.   —P.J.
