Join your Berkeley Heights neighbors for a day of environmental action on Sunday, November 6 for Environment Day! Various events are scheduled throughout the day, beginning at 9:30 am (schedule in graphic below). Activities include:
- Clean up litter around our parks and along the walking trails in Berkeley Heights.
- Help audit walking paths in support of our Safe Routes to School program; community members walk together and note what makes their route feel comfortable for walking, and what may be missing. This particular walk will focus on the route from Columbia Middle School to Snyder Park, a popular spot for after-school and weekend recreation
- Join a Forestry Management Ph.D on the management of invasive species and the importance of a healthy forest (participants may join a cleanup after).
- Meet the founders of Union County Connects and learn about their mission in developing Union County's trail, bike, and pedestrian infrastructure.
