10th ANNUAL PINE BARRENS CLEANUP at WHARTON STATE FOREST


10 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! a DECADE!!!!!!!!

Come and take part in the largest one-day volunteer event at Wharton State Forest in New Jersey. On Oct 23rd 2011 at 9:00 AM the 10th annual PINE BARRENS 4 WHEEL DRIVE CLEANUP will begin with a sign up at the Atsion Ranger stations [where raffle tickets will also be sold to help defray the cost of wings and to support toys for kids] and conclude with the raffle and wing fest at the Pic a Lilly restaurant on rt 206 [they always help us out too]

Last year OVER 300 men, women and children collected two 30 cubic yard dumpsters full of trash while making new friends and enjoying the wonders of the pines. While doing this they worked up a voracious appetite that was satiated by hundreds of wings donated by clubs, businesses and individuals. Everyone had a great time and said they couldn’t wait till next year.

We are now soliciting past participants, 4 wheel drive clubs and local and national business’ to contribute time and resources to make this year’s event another overwhelming success.

This as a great opportunity to showcase a partnership for keeping our state lands clean and our right to transverse them unhindered. The rangers and staff at Wharton have embraced us and lend their time and support to help us have a safe and fun time. Terry at the ranger station has been a godsend to us and NOW MORE than ever the state of NJ park and forest system needs our help.

ALSO REMEMBER to bring toys for the disadvantaged kids who live where we wheel..

Last year we collected a lot of stuff for needy children for the holidays at the sign up spot at the Atsion ranger station and bought an additional 850 dollars worth of toys with the money YOU contributed!!!!!!!


Please be a part of this worthwhile event. Contact me to see how your family, organization or business can contribute to this worthy cause.

Thank you in advance for your dedication to a beautiful, clean and accessible state forest system.


PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS ON YOUR LOCAL CLUB or MAGAZINE EVENT PAGE TO GET THE WORD OUT!




SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!!

I will also be there mike the organizer is one of my best friends it's a good time and for a good cause. I also called the ranger station, I heard a rumor that 3 axle vehicles were banded from the forest. The ranger told me that was not true and all are welcome.

Hey that is pretty cool that you can take your rigs in the woods. I know there was a lot of talk of them being banned last year at the cleanup.

This information is inaccurate! Multi axle vehicles are not banned they just dont want them out there at this time due to the damaged roads and temp culverts are not strong enough to handle the weight of the trucks. PLEASE do NOT show up with with a fleet of 6 wheel trucks. Contact Mike or Terry and they will explain it to you better. I just talked to Terry and the Park Police and Fish & Wildlife Police and the trucks are not banned they just don't want to see allot of them on the roads right now because of the repairs that are going on since the storm and allot of the roads were washed out and damaged. Again please contact terry at Batsto or Mike T. for official info.

I got an email from Mike a few weeks ago saying they were discouraging people with MVs because they have more then 2 axles. I also talked to terry and got the same response but in more detail explaining about the culverts and the road damage. I was asked to not bring my truck so I will be driving the CUCV this year again, even thought the exhaust looks like Swiss Cheese.

If you do bring a deuce, just be aware of what is going on and remember there will be press there this year and video and so on because of the anniversary. Maybe we will get some positive media coverage for the MVs and the 4x4 community.

I talk to mike regularly and he didn't know. And I called the ranger station and they said they were allowed. I'm gonna show up of they don't let me I'll find someone to ride with
