    LAKE HOPATCONG — The Musconetcong Watershed Association (MWA) is seeking volunteers to help with its 17th Annual Spring Cleanup slated for Saturday, April 14, from 9 a.m. to noon. At 9 a.m., volunteers will meet at Lake Hopatcong State Park, Stephen State Park, Hackettstown Alumni Park, Penwell Road Fishing Area, Point Mountain Park, Butler Park Road, Hampton Boro Park, MWA River Resource Center, Bloomsbury/Asbury Road, Warren Glen Park, Riegelsville area. The Musconetcong River spans from Lake Hopatcong to the Delaware River and new meeting locations will be added to accommodate volunteers as they are signed on. Cleanup crews will attack litter along roadsides, parks and stream banks. Then the trash will be deposited in one of the pre-determined trash drop-off locations. "This is a great event and well worth the time and effort given by all our volunteers, past and present," said the MWA in a press release. Volunteers will be provided with t-shirts, work gloves, bags, snacks and water. Following the cleanup there will be a free picnic for participants at the newly open MWA River Resource Center at 10 Maple Avenue in Asbury.
