MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Department of Parks and Community Renewal are pleased to announce a fun and creative class for adults at Trailside Nature & Science Center in Mountainside. On Wednesday, Nov. 10, adults (ages 18 years and older) can learn to make a wreath using natural materials. The class will be held in the Visitor Center at Trailside from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. and the fee is $20 for Union County residents and $25 for out-of-county participants. Pre-registration is required.
“The wreath-making class is offered as part of the Fall Adult Workshop Series at Trailside,” said Freeholder Vice Chairman Deborah Scanlon, liaison to the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board. “The class is designed to provide adults with an opportunity to enjoy an evening with friends and neighbors while learning a unique craft.”
Participants will weave grasses, stems, flowers and seeds into a one-of-a-kind wreath to decorate their home. Trailside park naturalist and master gardener Ruth Yablonsky will instruct the class on how to identify, prepare and use nature’s bounty of dried autumn plants to create a beautiful holiday wreath.
All materials needed to create your wreath are included in the fee; however, participants are asked to bring a glue gun if possible.
