LHS Gets County Grant

December 07, 2017

The Lawrence Historical Society recently received a general operating grant of $5,800 from the Mercer County Culture and Heritage Commission.  This is the second year in a row the society has received a grant from the program, which is part of the New Jersey Historical Commission Regrant program.  General operating grants are used to offset business expenses such as insurance, professional services, and printing costs.  These grants have helped the society continue to provide free programming and relaunch our expanded newsletter.

Aldo Leopold's Big Wooods

October 02, 2017

Dr. Daniel Druckenbrod of Rider University has published an article on Aldo Leopold's Big Woods.  Dr. Druckenbrod presented his research as the Mary Tanner Lecturer in 2014 and has repeated the presentation for various groups in Lawrence Township.  The Big Woods are near Rider University and were the subject of research for Leopold while the future naturalist was a student at The Lawrenceville School in the early 20th century.  A good portion of the woods is still forestland.  You can read Dr. Druckenbrod's article on the New Jersey Studies website.
