We will meet on June 12 at 7pm at the Delran Municipal Building. Anyone is welcome to walk in and join the discussion. This month we are focused on finalizing the details for Sustainability on Tap, which starts on June 24. We’ll also be talking about our Community Forestry Plan, Delran Night Out, other education and outreach ideas as well as possible Eagle Scout projects. Love to see a few new faces. We were lucky enough to be at Conrow Park during a drone flight. This shows the new trees we planted on Arbor Day and the new playground equipment installed this year.
The 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.
