Toy and Halloween Costume SWAP

We hope that you will participate in our first Toy and Halloween Costume SWAP.  The idea is to donate gently used toys and costumes and attend the SWAP and go home with something new.  We want the kids to learn that it’s a great way to reduce what goes into our landfills and our recycling centers.  Most things still have a lot of life left but the child has out grown the toys.  We’ve scheduled several drop off times but if none work for you, send an email to Delran.green@gmail.com and we’ll work something out.

Screen Shot 2019-05-10 at 5.05.50 PMThe Spotted Lanternfly has been found at Palmyra Cove Nature Center.  While it was originally spotted in November, the Department of Agriculture is working to remove its favorite tree – the Tree of Heaven.  We’ve posted information on how to identify and what to do if you find a spotted lanternfly.  We also added information on what to do with the Tree of Heaven.  Help stop the spread of invasive species.
