Honoring Our Planet: The Land Conservancy of New Jersey Will Host Earth Day Celebration at South Branch Preserve
In celebration of Earth Day 2019, The Land Conservancy of New Jersey will host its annual event at South Branch Preserve on Saturday, April 27th.
Officially recognized on April 22nd, Earth Day was established in 1970 to highlight the importance of environmental issues and educate the public about the need for environmental reforms. Since then, the concept has spread around the world to some 193 countries.
The Land Conservancy has hosted Earth Day events since 2014, and is proud to join other organizations and individuals around the world in bringing attention to the important work of preserving our natural open spaces, animal habitats, and clean water sources. Through this youth-focused event, we hope to educate and inspire the next generation of conservationists. “Earth Day provides a perfect opportunity to get young people excited about protecting New Jersey’s natural beauty in a fun, interactive way,” said Danielle Wolfrum, Director of Development and Communications.
The festivities on April 27th at South Branch Preserve will include a guided hike, scavenger hunt, seed planting, arts and crafts, and educational demonstrations about composting and gardening. In addition, the Chew Crew will make an appearance, thanks to our partner Antler Ridge Animal Sanctuary. The Chew Crew is working to clear invasive species from South Branch, and kids will have a chance to meet the crew. Refreshments will be provided on-site.
