BASF Volunteers Spruce Up Trails in the Watchung Reservation

Union County, NJ — A hardworking group of employees from BASF in Florham Park volunteered their time to help restore part of a hiking trail in Union County’s Watchung Reservation in June.

“I would like to thank this group of volunteers on behalf of the Freeholder Board for their hard work and generous donations to the Adopt-a-Park program,” said Freeholder Chair Bette Jane Kowalski, who stopped by to participate in the project. “Volunteers play an important role in maintaining our rustic trails for all to enjoy, and we appreciate all of their efforts.”

As participants in the Union County Adopt-A-Park program, the group from BASF braved severe heat to clear drainage ditches and cut back vegetation along the trail. They also donated $200.00 in tools to the program and they pitched in for a $300.00 donation in cash, too.

Any individual or group can join Adopt-a-Park and help with trail restoration, nature conservation, and other projects in Union County parks. For more information, visit or call 908-789-3683.
