cedar-lake-barn-bannerThe Blairstown Enhancement Committee in a joint effort with the State Department of Environmental Protection, Division of Parks and Forestry, State Park Service, will begin efforts to rescue the Cedar Lake Horse Farm, a legendary farm located in the lovely Township of Blairstown, Warren County.

The farm, purchased by the State about 15 years ago, has long suffered from neglect due to inadequate funding, as have many other State Parks and Historic sites. Future State funding continues to look bleak.

Termed a “special event day,” the State Park Service and volunteers from the Community will begin to revitalize the facility. Repair of fencing, painting of the main barn, removal of brush, and general cleanup will be jointly undertaken.

The special event will be held on Saturday, July 11th beginning at 8:00 a.m. in the morning and ending at 4:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided and a celebratory pool party will be held at the conclusion of the day. The Cedar Lake Farm is located at 16 Cedar Lake Road, Blairstown, New Jersey. Volunteers need only to wear old clothes and bring work gloves (and towels and bathing suits if they anticipate swimming afterward). The more the merrier – volunteers are more than welcome and may obtain further information by calling 908-362-6786
