July 11, 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.

In honor of National Pollinator Week, check out this online presentation focusing on the incredible ways in which plants communicate with animals. Discover amazing strategies of plants, the colors that pollinators see, and ways in which both plants and animals can help or deceive each other. Did you know that a bee's eye view is extremely different from what we see, and from what a bird sees? Participants will find that taking a much closer look at flowers can open up an entire hidden world that is more complex and fascinating than one ever imagined. Presented by Park Naturalist Jen Bulava. Available at the link provided here or on or Programs and Events Page.

Share what you found through pictures, lists, and drawings. For ages 9-12. Registration in Jr Ranger Program required. This program will be available July 8-14.
Most things in nature are brown and green. Since their home is brown and green, lots of animals try to blend in so they don’t get eaten. But sometimes we see other colors in nature. Look at the colors listed on the specific page in your Jr Ranger Packet and see how many you can find in the parks, take photos, and then share what you found with the naturalists. Students will learn how both camouflage and bright colors are used for survival strategies. Those who register for this week will receive a quick video link to explain why bright colors are found in nature. For ages 5-8. Registration in Jr Ranger Program required. This program will be available July 8-14.
