Union County Freeholder Chairwoman Bette Jane Kowalski (L) listens as Karen Inzillo, a naturalist with the Union County Trailside Nature and Science Center, speaks about turtles collected during “Bio-Blitz 2007” on June 15 at the Watchung Reservation in Mountainside. A Bio-Blitz is a 24-hour sampling of the flora and fauna in a particular location with the twin goals of studying the biodiversity of the area and making the public aware of that diversity.
