Adeline Arnold, Environmentalist, Honored by Freeholders

23 July 2009 was declared Adeline Arnold Day by the Monmouth County board of chosen freeholders, according to The Independent. Longtime Aberdeen resident and environmental advocate Adeline Arnold served for 35 years (1972-2007) on the Aberdeen Township Environmental and Shade Tree Advisory Board, 22 years as its chair. She also served 31 years on the Monmouth County Solid Waste Advisory Council. A Queens native, Arnold moved to Aberdeen from Brooklyn in 1964. She no longer serves on the board or council but continues to help out with special projects. She remains active on the League of Women Voters of NJ.
The township environmental board recently received a grant from Verizon to build an osprey nesting platform (pictured above), which was constructed by the township's Department of Public Works near the Whale Creek bridge along the county border in Cliffwood Beach (pictured left).

  1. Adeline K Arnold passed away on Saturday, January 3 at home with her family. Adeline was an exemplary, thoughtful, deeply caring woman with a quiet voice and a loud example. She left behind a planted seed of knowledge and awareness of the importance of actively caring for the environment. Thank you for leaving a clear path for us to follow.
