About This Site

When a fox or a red tail hawk find my 50 x 50 foot backyard and decide to
visit, I get excited. An amazingly large tree with an unusual silhouette catches
my eye — the flowering lilac bushes along the highway, ditto. I’m a marketer,
wife, and mom who likes to glimpse those little slices of nature that thrive
alongside the more than 10 million people who live in the Central NJ area. I’m
not a biologist, botanist, entomologist, politician, or ecologist. I simply appreciate God’s creation and enjoy observing the nature right under our noses.

Nature in the BurbsLet me know what you discover as you commute, raise families, and
survive where you live. Please post your comments and your own nature in the suburbs (or city) experiences below. Thanks for visiting. Contact Nature in the Burbs at: natureintheburbs@gmail.com

The creation of this blog was inspired by the Rutgers mini-MBA course in Digital Marketing where my classmates and I were challenged to put the knowledge we learned into practice. July 2011

  1. I’m pleased to see you promoting day-to-day nature in New Jersey (I grew up on Long Island). For the past half year I’ve had a blog portraying nature in and around Austin, Texas, where I’ve lived since 1976. I focus on native plants but for variety have included pictures of insects, spiders, birds, and mammals as they’ve come my way.

    Come have a look and compare my surroundings to yours:
