Hi all! In the age of Facebook, I am forgetting all about posting here as well, sorry.
We are doing some maintenance at the Batsto Pleasant Mills cemetery this Monday, August 31st at 4:30 PM. We could use all the help we can get. Beverages will be provided. They have some mowers there, but you are welcome (even encouraged) to bring your own or if you have any weed whackers or edgers they would be great to bring as well. Gas is provided.
I apologize for not posting this here sooner! The cemetery is a great old historic cemetery and church that is not maintained by the state. It is located on 542 where it intersects with Pleasant Mills Rd. I know it is a weeknight this time, but if we have a lot of people it shouldn't take more than a couple hours.

That cemetery is looking sad. Each time we go by Jessica comments about it.

I was out there a couple of months ago and wound up meeting the caretaker. I had been doing a FindAGrave project and picking up some trash. We talked for a while and he agreed to let me know when he planned the next mowing. I agreed to try to get some people together.

I'm glad it was advertised on here so I was able to alert Emile. It's another example of the importance of a well rounded forum.

I believe the address 4200 Nesco Rd Hammonton NJ will work. It's not Hammonton, but your map will think so.

GPS coordinates.
N 39° 38.419 W 074° 39.707


They are not exactly the church but will bring you to the parking lot.

Generally we frown on giving out the location of rare/T&E plants and animal dens on this site. Nobody here wants to see any damage come to them.
