Holmdel, NJ -  What happened to the seed oysters so meticulously planted along the Bayshore waterfront to help clean the waters?  Citizens for Informed Land Use welcomes NY/NJ Baykeeper Deputy Director Greg Remaud’s update on recent decisions affecting their oyster restoration program at its 7:30pm meeting on Wednesday, February 9 at the Holmdel Community Center. NY/NJ Baykeeper has been a supporter of open space programs in Holmdel, and was the chief source of funding for our Neil Waackaack Preserve, adjacent to Allocco Park on Middle Road. Mr. Remaud will also discuss Baykeeper initiatives to improve water quality and public access to the Bayshore.

Upcoming CILU events include our Friday, March 11 Annual Meeting and Pot Luck Supper and our hosting of First Energy/JCP&L Forester David Garrett on Wednesday, April 13.  Mark your calendars as beginning in May, CILU monthly meeting dates will change to 7:30pm on the second Monday of the month at the Holmdel Community Center.  Noted physicist Jan Dash’s Climate Change discussion, cancelled in January due to inclement weather, has been rescheduled for 7:30pm on Monday, May 9.
