Habitat loss from destruction, fragmentation and degradation is a threat the native flora and fauna. Gardeners in urban, suburban and rural residential communities are uniquely suited to create pockets of biodiversity to produce long term environmental sustainability.
Earth day was first celebrated on April 22nd, 1970. It is a special day set aside to appreciate our planet and to participate in projects which help to keep our environment clean and lively. It is very important to involve children in Earth Day events as they have the most important stake in keeping our planet healthy into the future.
Spring is here and we are ready to do some spring cleaning at Pfeiffer Nature Center! You can show appreciation for nature this Earth Day by assisting at our annual trail clearing and cleanup event. It is the perfect way to enjoy the woods while helping to keep our grounds and trails well maintained and accessible.
Enjoy a visit to the Pfeiffer cabin which is listed on the national and state registers of historic places. The American Chestnut cabin is a very well preserved specimen of rustic style whose basic integrity has remained unchanged since its 1939/1940 construction. The cabin is a true gem of the Lillibridge preserve and an indoor exploration is not to be missed!
Pfeiffer Nature Center is pleased to announce our photography contest and show! There are four categories for entries: Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer! This contest is open to all ages.
Delight in an afternoon of nature with your children or grandchildren at the Lillibridge preserve while engaging in many fun fall activities. Enjoy cider and doughnuts, “train” rides, pumpkin decorating, arts and crafts, and trick or treating along the interpretive trail. Costumes are encouraged to add to the fun!
