MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ – The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites families to become paleontologists for the evening on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at Trailside Nature & Science Center’s program, “Discover Dinosaurs.” This hour-long fun and educational program starts at 6:00 p.m. and is recommended for children ages 4-5 with an adult. The fee is $6 per person for Union County residents and $7 for out-of -county participants. Pre-registration is required.

“This program, part of Trailside’s Dusk to Dark Evening Family Programs, offers families an opportunity to participate in an interactive and engaging activity and it is specially designed to accommodate working families,” said Freeholder Chairman Deborah Scanlon.

Children will delight in pretending to be a paleontologist and search the Visitor Center for dinosaur bones. Families will work together to assemble a large dinosaur puzzle and measure the size of a Stegosaur, T-Rex and Ultrasaur. This program will encourage children to use their imagination and pretend to be dinosaurs for the night.
