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.

I'm excited to see Hillsborough doing so many things to help the environment and raise awareness for this Earth Week. Can't wait to learn more about the Sustainability Steps library series!

These are great events and a good way to connect with fellow residents. You can also make a personal commitment to the earth. Take a walk this week and have a plastic bag in your pocket. Collect the trash you see, recycle what you can. Most of the trash flying around in these gusty winds will end up in the waterways, which will end up in the ocean.

Instead of a clean up day, may we please have a clean up forever days... just pick up what you toss or whatever litter you walk over in the parking lot at Lowes. Lazy SFB's... i am sick and tired of these "days", or our endless celberation of whatever "month". We pick up trash for one day and leave the rest for 364??? REALLY. Do you have to call it sustainability day???
