October brings many special events at the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum in Short Hills.  On Thursday, October 8th, join horticulture specialist, Alda Krinsman, as she discusses Home Gardening and Invasive Plants. Find out about ornamental plants that you don’t want in your yard. Stay for snacks, beverages and a list of alternate plants. Recommended for ages 14 and up, the event begins at 6:30 pm. On Sunday, October 11th, at 1:00 pm, an arboretum naturalist will discuss Migration Madness. Learn about the fall and spring phenomenon of migration and what conservation practices you can do at home to assist these animals on their journeys. Included is a guided hike and learning about the brilliant birds that stop at the Arboretum for a rest. Younger participants can enjoy games and stories about migrating creatures. On Friday, October 23rd, from 6:00 - 8:00 pm, join the Arboretum's Environmental Eagles as they portray woodland animals in the wildy popular family event, Creatures of the Night.  Look and listen for our nocturnal neighbors on a guided hike, then return to the Stone House for snacks and crafts. In addition to our special events, the Cora Hartshorn Arboretum holds weekly programs for preschoolers through high schoolers. Adult programming includes Saturday morning and noon outdoor yoga. The 75-minute hatha/vinyasa class encourages awareness and stillness with this direct connection with earth and nature. No experience necessary. Please visit www.HartshornArboretum.org or call 973-376-3587 to pre-register for events and programs, or for more information about our green science programs.
