Sustainable Audubon meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 7 pm in the Senior Center on the corner of Oakland Ave. & Oak St. (We are meeting via Zoom during the COVID-19 pandemic. Email us at email@example.com to be added to the Zoom invite list).
Back in 2017, a group of dedicated residents volunteered to pursue environmental awareness and sustainability within Audubon Borough. Through Sustainable Jersey, a state non-profit organization that provides tools, training and financial incentives to support communities as they pursue sustainability programs, we began the effort to become Bronze certified. We received a grant from PSE&G and achieved Bronze certification in November 2019. We were also honored as “Rookie of the Year” for the State of New Jersey and as “Camden County Sustainability Champion” in 2019!
In 2020 we received a grant from New Jersey American Water to install two rain gardens in Audubon. One is at Green Wave Field and the other is at the Audubon Family Park next to the Francis J. Ward Recreation Center.
Through community outreach and tasks such as achieving Sustainable Jersey Bronze certification, and the installation and education of rain gardens, we are hoping to make the Borough of Audubon a place that future generations can enjoy!
