Students Prepare Warinanco Nature Habitat for Chilly Weather

Union County, NJ – Last week a hardworking group of student volunteers from Union County College in Elizabeth pitched in to help maintain a thriving wildflower meadow along the shores of the lake at Warinanco Park in Roselle. As part of Union County’s Adopt-a-Park program, the enthusiastic group spent the day removing dried weeds, debris and old fencing. The wildflower meadow provides sustenance and shelter for birds, butterflies and other valuable pollinators. It features a colorful array of seasonal plantings throughout spring, summer and fall. Any individual or group is welcome to join Adopt-a-Park. For more information, call the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation at 908-789-3683 or visit online at For more Union County volunteer opportunities and environmental programs visit The Green Connection.
