On Sept. 22nd the RRTU Chapter returned to help complete the Cliffdale Inn project by planting and caging

Trout Unlimited volunteers from all over New Jersey help plant native trees and shrubs on Sunday October the 14th. This restoration project was on the banks of the state owned Musconetcong Wildlife Management Area along the river
just upstream of the Musconetcong Watershed Association's River
