“Whimsical Wall Hangings” Workshop

at Trailside, March 14



MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce a program for adults at Trailside Nature & Science Center in Mountainside entitled “Whimsical Wall Hangings” on Thursday, March 14, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. The fee for this program is $15 for Union County residents and $20 for out-of-county participants.

“This engaging and satisfying workshop taps our creativity, while utilizing the natural materials found all around us,” said Freeholder Chairman Linda Carter.

The workshop, taught by Trailside park naturalist Ruth Yablonsky and exhibit artist Susan Anderson, offers an opportunity to create peaceful, natural wall hangings that will enhance your home. Using dried natural materials, such as goldenrod, wild grasses, dried leaves and grape vines gathered from the Watchung Reservation, participants will make their own unique adornment. Bring your imagination and a glue gun and pruning shears if you have them.
