Thanks to generous grant funding from the Allamuchy Environmental Commission Clean Communities Fund, the Allamuchy Township Second Graders had the opportunity to actively participate in the Dove Environmental Clean Communities “New Jersey Wildlife Habitats & Litter” program in December. This fun, hands-on, interactive educational program enhanced the students’ animal habitat study. The children learned valuable lessons about the importance of keeping our environment clean for the health and safety of our animal population.
