Brunswick Forest

With Earth Day just around the corner, we’ve come up with 10 ways to join in the fun at Brunswick Forest.

Walk, bike or hike on the 100+ miles of trails throughout picturesque Brunswick Forest…be sure to stroll through the boardwalk!

Gather your neighbors and walk your favorite park picking up any litter you see along the way.  When finished, reward yourselves with ice cold lemonade.

Grab a friend and head down to the River Club at Brunswick Forest for a kayak adventure.

Get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  Take a picture of something that inspires you!

Visit the Brunswick Forest Tree Nursery.  Did you know that Brunswick Forest has planted over 1000 trees throughout the community?!

Cook a special Earth Day dinner and invite your friends and neighbors. Plan a menu that uses locally produced foods, is healthy and has minimal impact on the environment.

It’s not too late to get the kids together for an Earth Day Fair.  Have each child create a display showcasing environmentally-friendly products, recycling tips, Earth Day inspired artwork or healthy/locally grown foods to eat.  Then, gather at the Community Commons near the Brunswick Forest Fitness & Wellness Center and put on the fair.

Visit the Leland Recreation Building on Saturday, April 21st for the Free Plant Giveaway in honor of Earth Day 2012.

Start composting!  There’s no time like the present…just visit your local hardware store and they can get you started.

Be car free…walk to The Villages in Brunswick Forest to start your morning off and grab a cup of coffee at Port City Java.  Then, head to the Fitness and Wellness Center for a quick work out.  Finish your day surrounded by your friends, family and neighbors because there is no better way to celebrate Earth Day than to be with the people you love!
