Water Street Park is located just off Halstead Street and the Water Street parking lot and is visable as you cross the bridge. The Conservancy received a $10,000 grant from Sustainable Jersey to turn the park into a wildlife habitat area for birds and butterflies. Clinton Holiday Inn donated $5,000 to help support our efforts. Clinton Presbyterian Church volunteers started clean up in April 2017and members of the Green Team and Environmental Commission removed invasive species. Two large dogwood trees were purchased and planted with Holiday Inn funds. Boy Scout Troop 21 and volunteers led by Zach Kovach planted sedges and perennials along waters edge to help stabilize the bank. New shrubs and trees were tucked in around the existing trees. The area closest to the parking lot was planted with 34 ferns and wildflowers. Kim Rogan organized the Girl Scouts and other volunteers and together they planted the berm with spring flowering bulbs. A Monarch way station, host plants for butterflies, and perennials were planted at the far end of the park by members of the Sierra Club and other volunteers.
Please volunteer if you want to help maintain the gardens in this area..
