TRENTON - A woman is setting off on a nine-day paddle across the Garden State to raise awareness about environmental issues that are threatening New Jersey.

Margo Pellegrino, a stay at home mother of two, will begin the paddle Thursday in an outrigger canoe in Trenton. Pellegrino says she wants to draw attention to New Jersey's ailing freshwater, ocean, and coastal resources.

The paddle is just the first leg of a multi-year paddle from Trenton to New Orleans.

The plan along the journey is to join other environmental leaders and help draw attention to issues impacting our inland waterways and ocean and urge communities to take necessary action.
