The Reeves Reed Arboretum is dedicated to enriching the lives of everyone living in Millburn-Short Hills. By engaging and educating their visitors they encourage the public to become better “stewards of nature and the environment”. Their legacy of service will be a hallmark of the Arboretum as they touch the lives of everyone in the community.
The event calendar at the Arboretum is very active. Many guests visit the Millburn-Short Hills property to enjoy its beauty. For instance, there are multiple events happening on Wednesday the 25th of April. That morning, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Lead Horticulturist Julieanne Frascinella will teach a class on how to identify weeds and remove or suppress them. They will meet in Wisner House’s sun porch and then follow Julieanne on a tour of the entire grounds as she explains everything gardeners need to know about weeds. The “Weed or Wildflower? Spring Weed ID and Controls” class is completely free for Arboretum members, and only $10 for non-members.
Kids Explore Nature on the Millburn-Short Hills Property of Reeves Reed Arboretum
In the afternoon, from 1 to 2 p.m., the usual weekly class for 3 to 5 year olds, “Oaks and Acorns (Rock Hounds),” will bring the wonder of the natural world to visiting little ones. Every week the children create their own piece of art, hear stories, and enjoy a nature walk. This class is also free for members, and only $10 for non-members. Register early, because space is limited.
Women should plan to attend the “Wellness Support 101” class from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. Attendees will learn how to support and sustain their own wellness practice. Master Coach Deborah Munies will address topics from “navigating naysayers” to addressing “self-sabotaging fears”. The small fee for members is $25, and $35 for non-members. Women will learn all they need to strengthen every area of their health. With so many events happening on the 25th, there will be something for everyone that day!
