New Jersey Makers Day – Family Program “Gardening for Wildlife & Water Conservation” with the American Littoral Society

March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Families are invited to celebrate New Jersey Makers Day at the Cumberland County Library!

Join the American Littoral Society for a family-friendly program focusing on native plants and how pollinators, insects and other wildlife depend on them for food, water and shelter.

Following the presentation, we’ll build planter boxes and each family that attends will receive 2-3 native plants to plant in them!

This program is funded by a New Jersey Makers Day MiniGrant from the New Jersey State Library and the PSEG Foundation.

The planter boxes will be created by STEAMworks of Bridgeton and the native plants provided by New Moon Nursery of Woodstown.

New Jersey Makers Day is a celebration of maker culture across the Garden State.

This all-ages event connects individuals with libraries, schools, businesses, and independent makerspaces that support making, tinkering, crafting, manufacturing, and STEM-based learning.

Registration is required. Register by calling (856) 453-2210 x26105 or online here.
