May 14, 2020, 10:00 AM - July 2, 2020, 4:00 PM @ Smithville Mansion Annex Gallery
Some things just don’t belong. This show will feature a collective of art that shows something unnatural or slightly off. Think of fabricated landscapes, experimental process, science fiction, or even something that just might be not considered “normal”. Slightly unsettling, imaginative works that make you question reality can be seen at this exhibit. Artist Reception: May 16th from 1-3pm.
May 16, 2020, 8:00 AM - May 31, 2020, 7:30 PM
As we all know, right now, we can’t get together and have an organized walk, but we CAN still walk together!
Here is your chance to join the Burlington County Parks Virtual Run/Walk Challenge in a safe environment while social distancing. The challenge is about being healthy, having fun, accomplishing personal goals, and being outside enjoying the parks or a favorite spot, on your time from whatever location you choose.
Starting May 16th through May 31st, we ask that you keep track of your own miles from your walk, run, bike ride or treadmill experience. At the conclusion of this challenge, you submit the total miles that you ran or walked during that time. We’ll total up the miles to see how many miles we logged as a group. Let’s see how far we can go! Submit all miles by email to Hscotto@co.burlington.nj.us. No amount is too little or too much! You set the pace! Let us know if any family members walked with you!

Jonny Buss, a craftsman, artist and employee of Burlington County Parks, creates abstract compositions through the use of visual digital data corruption, photocopy wheat paste and acrylic stenciling techniques. The aesthetic of his artwork is a commentary about the relationship between data, technology and contemporary society. Abstract Sound installations will accompany the visual art through the duration of the exhibit.

May 28, 2020, 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Rancocas Nature Center
The earth isn’t getting any cooler and vehicle charging stations are popping up in unexpected locations, so it’s time to become familiar with the next generation of sustainable energy cars and trucks. Local dealership, Miller Ford in Lumberton, will be at the nature center to showcase the latest in hybrid and electric vehicles. We’ll have a chance to get behind the wheel for a close-up look, learn about the new technologies, and ask questions. Even if you are not ready to “go electric” in 2020, it should be very informing. Register online. There is no charge for this program, but donations are encouraged.

May 30, 2020, 8:30 AM - 1:00 PM @ Burlington County Community Agricultural Center
We are happy to announce the opening of the Burlington County Farmers Market on May 23. While we know that our customers have enjoyed spending time at the Market to socialize with friends and vendors, listen to the live music, or sit in on a cooking demonstration, we have had to make changes due to the COVID-19 crisis. At this time, our focus must be on the core mission of the Market - to give local farmers the opportunity to market their produce directly to the consumer and give the public access to fresh, locally grown produce and value-added products. For the foreseeable future, there will be no musical entertainment or cooking demonstrations. Only agricultural vendors and prepared food vendors will be able to participate at the market.
