Go Green This Winter in Millburn-Short Hills!

Among the many New Year’s resolutions you may have this year, one may be to go green. But becoming more environmentally-friendly isn’t only about making the appropriate upgrades to your home and carrying cloth bags to the grocery store. It’s also about becoming more aware of environmental issues and learning more about the area around us. Luckily, there is one place that you can become more eco-savvy in the Millburn-Short Hills area, and that is the Essex County Environmental Center!

As a Millburn-Short Hills real estate agent, I try to make it a priority to stay knowledgeable about many different events happening in the area because all of my clients have different interests. If I can let them know about something that is happening in the community that may be of interest to them, then I always take the chance to do so. This winter, the Essex Environmental Center is offering several nature programs for both children and adults. It’s the perfect way to start going green: the more you know about the environment around you, the better you can figure out how to improve it.

Here are a few of the events happening in the environmental center this month:

Thursday Evening Yoga Series

Thursdays, January 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th at 6:15pm
This soothing exercise program, geared towards adults, is meant to unwind the body and soul before bedtime. We know it’s not on the educational side, but it’s a great way to relax and start treating your body well! Dress comfortably and bring your own mat. The cost is $40 for the whole series, so if you’re interested, make sure you sign up!

Birding Hike in Essex County Weequahic Park

Thursday, January 12th at 8:00am
What better way to start learning about the nature around you than by going on a hike? Not only will this walk give you a little morning exercise, but you’ll also get the opportunity to learn about wintering ducks, gulls and birds while searching for them. The trail around the lake is easy, so you can really take some time to absorb your surroundings. The cost is only $8.00 for non-members and $6.00 for members, so sign up today!

New Jersey Woodturners

Monday, January 23rd at 7:00pm
This activity is perfect for those of you with a creative side. Learn the wonders of turning ordinary pieces of wood into stunning works of art at this fun-filled workshop! This is a monthly program offered by the Essex Environmental Center, so if you have fun at the first one, you can go back for more! The cost is $8.00 for non-members and it’s free for members. Enjoy expressing your artistic talents through wood!

Going green doesn’t have to be all work and no play! These fun-filled activities at the Essex County Environmental Center will make learning about the environment fun. You can find some more events happening at the center this month right here.

As your Millburn-Short Hills real estate agent, I think it’s important to stay well-informed about what is happening in the community. It’s just another way that you can use me as a resource for all of your Millburn-Short Hills real estate needs. If you ever have any questions about buying or selling a home on the local market, don’t hesitate to contact me! I’d be happy to help you at any time. I hope to hear from you soon!
