Keenan Porter, a local landscape architecture student, conducted a study, provided renderings, and did a full planting plan to cover the six total acres of the Fanwood Nature Center, which runs between Cray Terrace and South Ave. in Fanwood.
"A project like this takes a while. We ordered plants through Amberg last year. Today is the final day of the work," said Eric Gaulin, the chair of the Fanwood Environmental Commission. "It involved the work of a lot of volunteers. To have paid a professional landscape company, it would have cost $50,000-60,000. Instead, we were able to do it for less than $5,000."
