Need to get outdoors and away from...(whatever!)

The Forest Resource Education Center -FREC has a new gardening experience for you! The FREC has a pollinator/wildlife garden that is in need of a "Friends Group". Come join if you are an individual or a few folks who are interested in maintaining and caretaking the garden this Fall 2021 and also next Spring 2022.

Many flowers and shrubs are well established but there is room for more to make the garden a real showcase for native NJ plants. We hope to continue the "growing spirit" and offer engaging, educational garden programs for the community next summer.
