This is one of many workshops being put together by the Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Community Renewal. Workshops are taking place at Trailside Nature and Science Center. Trailside’s location in the scenic Watchung Reservation provides the perfect classroom for fun while learning about the environment and the natural world around us.
