Day 14: Environment


Back to 15 Days of Giving

Take a Hike – Plant a Tree – Cultivate a Garden

Our environment is a precious commodity, and we are very fortunate to have many wonderful forests, open spaces, trails, Environmentcommunity gardens that give us opportunities to get our hands dirty and reap the bounty of our hardwork.

We are within minutes of many great places for camping, kayaking, biking or simply taking a walk through some amazing natural resources. The changing seasons offer new sights and experiences. Colored leaves. Migrating animals. Natural waterways moving from water to ice and back to water. So – Go take a hike – Literally!

Do you enjoy playing in the dirt? Local garden clubs and community gardens offer the fun of getting dirty while beautifying our Main Streets and cultivating fresh produce for our local food banks. Instead of taking your family to the mall or the movie theater, why not consider helping to harvest tomatoes or plant garden beds on Main Street?

Then let us know: What is your favorite park or garden in Middlesex County?

We are honored to work with so many incredible people who care about our region and it’s health and established funds to support important programs and services, such as the Katchen Coley Conservation Fund and the Phyllis M. McDowell Fund.

There are many ways to give back to our community.
