|Rally Across the Boards
A great event at beautiful Asbury Park Boardwalk next Sunday, October 29th around 2:00 to honor 5 year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Looking to get 1000 people to hold hands across the boardwalk to bring attention to climate change.
|For Adults Only….
Seriously, for years when parents have come to pick up their children from camp they have asked us, "When is adult camp?" Welcome then to the Nature Center's first installment of Adult Nature Camp. The focus of our inaugural Adult Nature Camp this fall will be to transport our "campers" back to their childhood. First, we'll pick up cool things off of the beach like shells, driftwood and flotsam to be used in the camp's "Adult Arts & Crafts" programs. Then, we'll employ various media to transform these items into beautiful works of art which will make thoughtful and treasured holiday gifts for your friends and family. Remember, these camps are for adults only, so campers must be over 21, and BYOB is your option. Sign up for all classes in advance and receive one class free along with an art apron to wear. Pre-registration is required since space is limited. Call 609-427-3045 to sign up for with your questions and ideas. Cost is $20 per session for New Jersey Audubon members and $25 for non-members and includes all materials. Your registration cost includes a materials and supplies fee, but participants are encouraged to bring any extra items that they so choose. Classes have been scheduled for Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:30 beginning October 19th. Stay tuned for the spring installment of Adult Nature Camp.
