Peer Led Meditation Group at Jersey Community Acupuncture in Flemington
Mar 29 @ 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

Every Wednesday, Nicole from Jersey Community Acupuncture will be offering a peer led meditation practice from 8:30am to 9am. This will be ongoing, every Wednesday.

Donate $1 to $10 dollars which will go to a local organization. For the months of February thru April, all donations will go to SAFE in Hunterdon.

This is a great space for folks new to meditation or those looking for community support in their practice. We will start off with a few minutes of breath work and then settle in for about 20 minutes of sitting mediation, followed by questions and comments. Why practice meditation? Most of us tend to be busy, busy, busy. It is rare that we take time to settle in our bodies and listen. Part of meditation is clearing the mind, but it is also a great time to just sit and notice how we are feeling in our bodies. In our fast paced lives, it amazing how very difficult it can be to sit for even 20 minutes. Being in community allows us more support to work through this quiet space.

Let us know with a phone call or email if you plan to attend. 908.237-1076 or [email protected]

Hunterdon Park’s Spring Nature Club
Apr 4 @ 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

SPRING NATURE CLUBS FOR KIDS AGES 3 – 3RD GRADE

Our popular spring nature clubs will introduce your child to many exciting nature topics.  A professional Park Naturalist will guide the children during hikes as they discover the diverse field, forest, and pond habitats at Echo Hill.  Other hands-on activities include science experiments, field games, and take-home craft projects. The children will be able to observe the subtle changes from week to week as we progress through the season.  Through our explorations, children will also hone their attention to detail as we observe the colors, shapes, textures, and sounds of the natural world.

 

This year we are offering Sessions A and B for ages 3 to 5 and Session C for kindergarten through third graders.  This is a drop-off program and children must be self-sufficient in the bathroom. 

 

Please be sure to dress your child for the outdoors so that the whole group will be able to enjoy our lessons fully.  We strongly recommend old clothes and sneakers/boots that can get dirty.  Nature Clubs meet rain or shine.  In inclement weather, we shorten our outdoor adventures in order to spend more time inside.

 

Eight Tuesdays, April 4 to May 23, Echo Hill, $90 for all 8 lessons

Session A: 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM, ages 3 to 5 years

Session B: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM, ages 3 to 5 years

Peer Led Meditation Group at Jersey Community Acupuncture in Flemington
Apr 19 @ 12:30 pm – 1:00 pm

Every Wednesday, Nicole from Jersey Community Acupuncture will be offering a peer led meditation practice from 8:30am to 9am. This will be ongoing, every Wednesday.

Donate $1 to $10 dollars which will go to a local organization. For the months of February thru April, all donations will go to SAFE in Hunterdon.

This is a great space for folks new to meditation or those looking for community support in their practice. We will start off with a few minutes of breath work and then settle in for about 20 minutes of sitting mediation, followed by questions and comments. Why practice meditation? Most of us tend to be busy, busy, busy. It is rare that we take time to settle in our bodies and listen. Part of meditation is clearing the mind, but it is also a great time to just sit and notice how we are feeling in our bodies. In our fast paced lives, it amazing how very difficult it can be to sit for even 20 minutes. Being in community allows us more support to work through this quiet space.

Let us know with a phone call or email if you plan to attend. 908.237-1076 or [email protected]

Canoeing Hunterdon’s Waterway with Hunterdon Parks
Apr 22 @ 8:15 pm – Oct 21 @ 3:30 pm

Join the Parks on the river where we have been canoeing for 40 years.  It is fun, educational, and great exercise!  Spend a day with nature.  Just bring water, lunch, and a smile—we will do the rest.  We supply the canoes, kayaks, gear, training, and transportation.  Our experienced leaders teach the ways of currents and eddies and how to paddle mankind’s oldest craft, with a few new tricks.  Tell us what you want to learn—we are eager to teach.  Unless stated otherwise, all trips are suitable for ages 8 through adults.  Children must be accompanied by an adult.

 

CLINTON POND PADDLES

Saturday, April 8, Clinton Town parking lot off of Halstead Street & Water Street, ages 6 through adults, $25

Session A: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM

Session B: 12:00PM to 2:00 PM

Paddle around the scenic “Clinton Pond”… past the lily pads, under the road bridge, past the historic Red Mill, up to the spillway of the Spruce Run Reservoir, and back.  Great for children ages six and up (with an adult), senior citizens, beginners, folks with special needs (please inform us in advance), or those with a hankering to take a leisurely paddle and commune with nature.

 

FLAT WATER PADDLE:  SUNSET PADDLE ON ROUND VALLEY RESERVOIR

Session A: Friday, June 16

Session B: Friday, July 14

Friday, July 17, 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, Round Valley

Reservoir Boat Launch, ages 8 through adult, $25

Treat yourself to a leisurely evening sunset paddle.  The group will meet at Round Valley Reservoir Boat Launch (white van with green canoes).  Bring a flashlight and a jacket: it can get much cooler by the water after sunset.

 

PLANNING YOUR CANOE TRIP

Pre-register by the Wednesday before the trip.  Please note: Due to water levels or other circumstances beyond our control, leaders may choose an alternative river.  If we cancel the trip for any reason, we will call you as soon as we make the cancellation, but our trips run rain or shine!  Dress in layers so you can adjust to changing

temperatures.  Durable old clothes are best, especially wool and polypropylene fleece in cool weather.  Sneakers are recommended; no sandals, boots, or heavy shoes.  Bring lunch (packed in waterproof container), lots of water, sunscreen, a rain jacket, a hat, eyeglass strap, etc.  A complete change of clothing can be packed in a waterproof bag to be carried in your canoe or to be in the van for the trip’s end.  No alcoholic beverages.  No pets are allowed, except for guide animals.  We have several kayaks available, but can also accommodate your own kayak on many trips (at your own risk).

RIVER TRIPS

8:15 AM to about 3:30 PM, Arboretum, ages 8 through adults, $35

Your leaders will fit you with a lifejacket and paddle and then drive to the river, where they will discuss

maneuvering techniques and canoe safety.  Our leaders will guide you down the river.  We paddle for about two hours, stop for lunch, and paddle for about two more hours.  We are flexible with our time, which depends in part on natural forces, such as wind speed and the river’s water level.  Our aim is to return to the Arboretum by 3:30 PM, give or take an hour.
