Are You River-Friendly? Is Montgomery? Let’s show we are!

Posted on June 22, 2016

The Montgomery Township Environmental Commission and Sustainable Montgomery have formed an alliance with SBMWA to support the River Friendly Education Program for our watershed. What does it mean to have your property river-friendly certified?

Becoming River-Friendly is easy. Simply fill out the below survey (from the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed Association), which outlines actions you can take at home to protect clean water and the environment. Categories include water quality protection, lawn & garden maintenance, water conservation, and wildlife habitat. If you check off a certain number of actions, you will become part of SBMWA River-Friendly Resident network; this includes exclusive workshops and events, access to the Facebook Group, and an eye-catching yard sign that lets the community know about your efforts. If you fall short, our coordinator will work with you to implement additional practices to help you reach the target score.

Take online survey to see if you are River-Friendly!
