We aim to end the day with no trash so please bring only usable items.

Freecycling  day  is  a  community event for people to exchange usable items for personal use, not for resale

Volunteers needed!  We will need help setup (starting at 8am), direct traffic and help people during the event (9am-2pm) and cleanup (2pm-3pm).  Click here to sign up.

East Brunswick Town-wide Butterfly Survey

East Brunswick Butterfly Survey continues! 

The Friends launched the first town-wide East Brunswick Butterfly Survey in spring 2017 o better understand our butterfly fauna. We are calling on everyone in town (and anyone else that wants to visit) to become Citizen Scientists and help us document what butterflies occur in East Brunswick and where and when they were found. 

We have set up an iNaturalist project called "East Brunswick Nature"for everyone to post their photos. We are interested in any sightings anywhere in town, from backyards to our amazing parks. You can upload butterfly photos taken in East Brunswick any time in 2017 or before. Read more
