National Public Lands Day at Mapleton Preserve

Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands will host its annual National Public Lands Day work session in the Mapleton Preserve on Saturday, September 24, 2016, from 2 to 4 pm. National Public Lands Day is the nation's largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance the public lands Americans enjoy. Friends of Princeton Nursery Lands invites the public to play a part and contribute to the restoration of the Mapleton Preserve, the former home of Princeton Nurseries and a significant historical site in Central New Jersey.

FPNL's focus this year is tending trees in the Arboretum, clearing brush and vines from ornamental trees, and collecting litter. Volunteers are asked to bring their own loppers, pruning shears, saws, rakes and shovels. Sturdy shoes, work gloves, long pants, long-sleeved shirts and hats are also recommended.

The entrance to the Mapleton Preserve/D&R Canal State Park is at 145 Mapleton Road in Kingston. For more information, visit the FPNL website or call 609-683-0483.

Shikantaza at Jazz Café Friday Night

Shikantaza (clockwise): Bernhard Geiger, Tanya Saunders, Doug Miller, Brandon Lewin.

The jazz trio Shikantaza will perform with Tanya Saunders at the South Brunswick Jazz Café on Friday, September 9, 2016, from 8 to 10 pm. The word shikantaza, translated literally as just sitting, refers to a form of Japanese Zen Buddhist meditation. The musical group (Doug Miller on piano, Bernhard Geiger on acoustic bass, Brandon Lewin on percussion, and featured vocalist Tanya Saunders) explores the jazz canon, making familiar works uniquely their own, as well as offering original compositions developed improvisationally. Their music draws inspiration from many genres. To read more about Shikantaza and to listen their music, click here.

The South Brunswick Jazz Café is located at the Herb Eckert Auditorium in the Senior Center, South Brunswick Municipal Complex, 540 Route 522 in Monmouth Junction. Admission is $6 at the door. Doors open at 7:30 pm. This performance is a BYOB event. There will be one intermission. For more information, call 732-329-4000, ext. 7635, or click here.
