East Brunswick Town-wide Butterfly Survey

The Friends are launching the first town-wide East Brunswick Butterfly Survey to better understand our butterfly fauna. We are calling on everyone in town (and anyone else that wants to visit) to become Citizen Scientists and help us document what butterflies occur in East Brunswick and where and when they were found. We have set up an iNaturalist project called "East Brunswick Nature" for everyone to post their photos. We are interested in any sightings anywhere in town, from backyards to our amazing parks.  Read more

County's Acquisition of 76-acres in East Brunswick

On February 16, the County completed the purchase of the Ireland Brook-Tamarack Hollow Extension from Freedom Run, LLC. The Board of Chosen Freeholders authorized the use of $1.3 million from the Middlesex County Open Space and Recreation and Farmland and Historic Preservation Trust Fund to purchase the property. 

The land is located along the Ireland Brook on the East Brunswick-South Brunswick border. It connects 1,400 acres of County, state and local parkland, including the Ireland Brook Conservation Area, Tamarack Hollow Preserve and the Tamarack Golf Course.                       Read more



All plots are taken for 2017.
