Eyes of the Wild: Survival of the Fittest! Family Program @ Cranford Community Center, A/V Room
Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Eyes of the Wild: Survival of the Fittest! Family Program @ Cranford Community Center, A/V Room | Cranford | New Jersey | United States
Meet some real, live animals and learn about the various ways they protect themselves in the wild! Earth’s incredible creatures have to fight tooth and claw in order to scratch out an existence. Whether they possess the sharp claws of the raccoon-like Coatimundi, the sharp senses of Fennec Fox, the terrible teeth of the tiny short-tailed Opossum or the ridiculous flexibility of the Ferret, all predators must be resourceful, alert and adaptable in order to survive in the circle of life.

Tickets for this event can be picked up in the Children’s Department of the Cranford Public Library up to two weeks before the performance date.

    The Township, located in the heart of Union County, was incorporated in 1871 and through the years the business district and neighborhoods sprang up around the train station and the Rahway River. Today, the downtown, the river and the train station remain valued amenities to more than 22,000 residents in the four square mile township.

    By 1885, there were 76 residents commuting daily from Cranford to New York City. Today, close to 1,000 people take the train every day from Cranford’s Train Station.

    Cranford is a close knit community where many of its residents are actively involved in schools, sports, civic and community organizations. The Township is proud of its recreational facilities that include two outdoor pools, an indoor pool and fitness complex, bike path, canoe club, tennis courts, sports fields and parks. Cranford has a first rate K-12 school system.

    The Township operates under a Committee form of government with five commissioners elected at-large for three year terms. The commissioners decide who will serve as mayor and deputy mayor for a one-year terms. Four of the commissioners have oversight assignments for the various departments and municipal operations. The Township is managed on a day-to-day basis by the Township Administrator and department heads.
