Wild New Jersey
Time & Place
East Brunswick Public Library, 2 Jean Walling Civic Center, East Brunswick, NJ
Conservationist and author David Wheeler will present “Wild New Jersey: Nature Adventures in the Garden State” at the East Brunswick Public Library. The program is free and open to the public. Children 8 and older are welcome.
Wheeler, executive director of the nonprofit Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF) of New Jersey, will lead the audience on a journey through the diverse wildlife, nature destinations and exciting outdoor activities found in New Jersey. As a small region geographically, the state’s biodiversity rivals that of anywhere in the country.
“From bald eagles and bobcats to diamondback terrapins and bottlenose dolphins, wildlife abounds in New Jersey,” Wheeler says.
Wheeler is the author of the 2011 book, “Wild New Jersey: Nature Adventures in the Garden State,” and teachs environmental communications at Rutgers. He also is on the board of the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission.
His talk is part of the Option Green lecture series presented by the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission in partnership with the library. Friends EBEC is a nonprofit organization dedicated to conservation and environmental education. Membership is free and open to all township residents.
