Earth Day 2023
Our community’s natural beauty is why many of us moved here. This year the Ecology, Communications, and Clubhouse Committees joined forces to offer Highland Lakes members a chance to participate in a day that was both informative and fun.
In the morning members took to their sections and participated in a Community-Wide #RoadsideCleanUp.
At noon, members gathered at the Clubhouse for lunch, which was followed by a special presentation. Lisa Chiariello, from #Rutgers Cooperative Extension, discussed Landscaping Design Tips for Lakeside Communities – Protecting Water Quality while Benefiting Wildlife.
Following the presentation, Barbara Jaggi, Jason Tribiano, and Glenn Kamp answered questions in the Lake Room about their gardening methods – Composting, Country Yards, and Water Runoff Management.
Stuart Blank had a model that demonstrated how water runoff affects our lakes.
Collectively the volunteers put together a list of resources for members who are interested in learning more about how to contribute to the greater cause – #ProtectOurLakes.
We hope you enjoyed yourself at this year’s Earth Day event and we look forward to seeing you in July at our Lake Appreciation Day!
