MONTGOMERY EARTH DAY FAIR ’21 on April 25!

For 2021, in order to celebrate Earth Day safely while the pandemic is still a concern, the Montgomery Township  Environmental Commission is hosting a drive-thru style event where residents can pick up freebies including:  LED lightbulbs (donated by IMPACT Youth Club), milkweed plants, and tree seedlings.  The date is Sunday April 25, from 11:00AM to 1:00PM at Village Elementary School/Skillman Park (100 Main Boulevard, Skillman). No registration is required.  Please join us!

 

CARE FOR YOUR CORNER OF THE EARTH WITH MILKWEED PLANTS!

Milkweed plants are particularly important for the Monarch Butterfly population; milkweed is the sole food source for caterpillars, but serves as a food source for hundreds of other insects & pollinators.  Plant your milkweed in a location with full sun, and water it regularly.  More care instructions can be found here.
