Rising Tides: What Can The Past Tell Us About Future Climate Change?
Hillsborough Public Library Saturday April 26, 2014, 2:00 to 3:30 PM Program Room B
"Sustainability Steps'' Kickoff Program
Bob Kopp is Associate Director of the Rutgers Energy Institute and Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University. His presentation focuses on past and future climate and sea level changes, the uncertainties of the geological record, and the economic risks of future climate change.
As a tribute to Earth Day, join the library for the first of a multi‑part series titled, 'Sustainability Steps'. This series will focus on monthly topics to engage you in minimizing your carbon footprint.
Fundraiser: Help raise funds while improving our environment.
Bring your new or old, broken or working electronics to Woods Road School in Hillsborough on Saturday, April 26th from 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM. For a suggested donation of $3 to $5 or whatever you feel is appropriate, help keep harmful metals out of our landfills. Unlike last year, the recycling company is no longer paying the sponsors of electronic recycling drives, so the only funds raised will be from the donations collected. There will be people to unload your items. If you have questions, email Billy Bender at WoodsRoadElectronicsRecycling@gmail.com.
Please consider supporting WRS and bring your items on April 26th (same day and location as the 1 pm clothing drive).
Hillsborough Clean-Up Day
Hillsborough Township will host the 5th Annual Clean Up Day on Saturday, April 26th from 9 am until 12 noon starting at the Municipal Building. The Department of Public Works organizes it through a Clean Communities Grant. It’s an eye-opener when you see how much garbage is on the roadside.
