Spend a Day at Trailside!

Union County’s Environmental Education Center is located in the Watchung Reservation.Image

There are 4500 square feet of interactive exhibits including an incredible 34 foot American beech tree that is home to dozens (hundreds?) of fascinating smaller exhibits such as this hawk’s nest.

You’ll also love the small room, hidden behind a black curtain, that houses rather boring looking rocks. But, push the button and the lights go out and a fluorescent light shows you why these rocks are so incredible!

Another of our favorite exhibits was this one, dedicated to the Hadrosaur, New Jersey’s State dinosaur.

Whatever you do, don’t miss the night room, hidden in another corner of the museum. Sit on the small steps and watch and listen as the sounds and sights of the night come alive in one of the most magical 5 minutes you’ll ever find in a museum.

Be sure to sit on the bench facing the garden for a while and watch the birds come and visit!

The Hadrosaur has some small teeth! I love a good museum and can't wait for the kids to be full-grown so I can enjoy them by myself! LOL!
