Covid 19 Update

In light of current circumstances and recommendations from federal, state, and local agencies, our Prince Street facilities will be closed to the public effective immediately and we have decided to suspend all our community outreach and education programs until such time as health officials advise that the critical danger of community transfer has passed. In addition, we've decided to postpone the Making Our City Bloom Gala until October 15th. (More info will follow)

We would like to remind all our friends, colleagues, and clients that the Conservancy’s healthy living guidance has never been more relevant. In addition to social distancing and practicing careful personal hygiene, we encourage you to stay well fed with balanced healthy meals that you can prepare yourselves.

Please follow us on Facebook, Instagram and our website where we will be sharing some of our favorite health tips and recipes for you to try at home. Our staff is busy planning virtual lessons so you can engage your children in fun, educational activities while at home. Additionally, we will share community resources and updates as they become available. Staff will be available by email to answer questions about our programs and plans, so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

We deeply regret the necessity of these decisions and recognize the severity of the impact this crisis may cause. We look forward to welcome you to our facilities just as soon as we are able to do so.

You can learn more about COVID-19 from the CDC, the WHO and the NJ Covid-19 Information Hub.

Keep Calm and Wash Your Hands!
