Earth Day 2006 – Hackensack River Clean Up
Panasonic Secaucus based employees, members of the Hackensack Riverkeeper, and local school children met at Laurel Hill Park in Secaucus, New Jersey to Give Mother Nature a face lift.
The event was held Friday, April 21st, in preparation for Earth Day. Employees gathered for lunch and were briefed by members of the Hackensack Riverkeeper, a non profit organization dedicated to cleaning up the Hackensack River, on proper safety and clean-up procedures. Then teams disbursed to tidy up the river both on land and by water.
Students from the Secaucus Middle School Kid Witness News Team, were on hand to document the event. It was almost unbelievable how much trash could be collected from such a small area. It was a lesson in conservation learned by all.
The event was covered by CBS reporter Morry Alter on the April 21st evening news.
