May 3, 2020, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM @ Crystal Lake Park
Rain gardens can play a significant role in stormwater management by cleaning, cooling, and slowing runoff so that it doesn’t pollute water bodies. Learn how rain gardens work, how you can create a low-tech and effective rain garden, and which native plants are recommended to use. Join Watershed Ambassador Samantha Pfeffer, the Crafts Creek Watershed Association, and the Bordentown City Green Team to plant a rain garden. Children under the age of 15 need to be accompanied by an adult.
We will provide all materials but you are welcome to bring your own work gloves. Please bring your own water bottle, and wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty (we will be gardening) and closed toed shoes.
Registration required online.
May 3, 2020, All Day @ Rancocas Nature Center
Join a Rancocas Nature Center staff person or associate naturalist for an interpretive hike through our varied habitats. It’s a great way to become familiar with the trails. Bring a camera and/or binoculars as we’ll be sure to stop at scenic spots along the way. The easy pace is suitable for all ages, but you’ll need a child carrier to transport small children. Register online. Program is free. This Sunday series repeats on April 5 and May 3.
March 26, 2020, 10:00 AM - May 10, 2020, 4:00 PM @ Smithville Mansion Annex Gallery
Visit Historic Smithville Park to see works by the talented teens of Burlington County. Schools throughout the region came together for the Burlington County Teen Arts Festival in early March and will be represented in the exhibit. Artwork was selected by county adjudicators to be displayed in the exhibit and many will move on to the state competition. This will be a great opportunity for students, families and the community to see the artwork in a gallery setting. Gallery hours: Thursday-Saturday 10-4; Sunday 12-4. Reception: April 25 1-3 PM.
Due to COVID 19, galleries remain closed, but the exhibit's artwork can be viewed here: https://view.publitas.com/p222-7429/teen-arts-2020-1/

Robert has been interested in the way strong light defines spaces by producing dramatic shadows and highlights can also help to create atmospheres. He has been experimenting with that idea using street musicians he sees in center city Philadelphia and people in outdoor restaurants. The strong light helps to influence the narrative behind the figures. The subjects are representational – ranging from landscapes — which are both studio and plein aire — to figurative studies of people within environments in the city of Philadelphia. The landscapes are views from where he lives, which is along the Delaware River in Southern New Jersey. Robert’s paintings are small to mid-sized oil paintings. The paintings are executed on canvas, linen, and museum board using brushes and palette knives.
