East Brunswick Public Library Wins Award For Option Green Program Series

East Brunswick Public Library Wins Award For Option Green Program Series
The Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission and East Brunswick Public Library received a 2017 Environmental Achievement Award from the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions (ANJEC) for their Option Green Lecture series.

The award was presented at the ANJEC’s Environmental Congress at Mercer County Community College on October 13.
The ANJEC Environmental Achievement Award recognizes exceptional projects carried out by environmental commissions and nonprofit organizations that benefit the local environment. The criteria for the award are the project’s impact, originality, educational value, innovation, and response to a need in the community.

The Option Green Lecture Series began in March 2017 as a partnership between the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission and the East Brunswick Public Library. The series’ goal is to host speakers on a wide range of topics that offer new or updated information on specific environmental issues.

Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions President Nancy Tindall and Executive Jennifer M. Coffey present East Brunswick Public Library Programming Librarian Melissa Hozik with the Environmental Achievement Award for the Friends of the East Brunswick Environmental Commission and East Brunswick Public Library’s Option Green programming series. 


This year, topics in the series have included climate change in New Jersey, hydroculture, salamander migration and protection, and beekeeping. For more information about the upcoming lectures, including geocaching, visit www.friendsebec.com.
