In spite of gloomy weather, spirits were high on Sunday, January 22, as the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum, in partnership with the Chinese Association of Millburn-Short Hills and members from Millburn High School’s Environmental and International Clubs, hosted the second annual Lunar New Year and Welcome Spring Celebration at the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum in Short Hills. Attendees enjoyed games, crafts, stories and, to everyone’s delight, a parade with a traditional ceremonial “lion” through the arboretum’s woodlands led by professionals from the Wushu-Kung Fu Fitness Center. The annual celebration was held one week prior to the actual start of Chinese New Year as the Arboretum is set for a major renovation of its animal exhibit area beginning January 28, 2017. For more information about the excellent nature learning opportunities (camps, programs and events) for all ages, please visit www.HartshornArboretum.org.
