Student Volunteers Help Plant New Native Trees in Union County’s Oak Ridge Park

Union County’s Oak Ridge Park in Clark is home to six new American Dogwood trees, a native species valued as forage for songbirds and other wildlife. The trees were provided by the Union County Commissioner Board and were planted by County staff with help from the Rutgers University Collegiate 4-H Club. 4-H volunteer Greg Bikofsky of Cranford will also help with ongoing care of the trees. The Commissioner Board thanks all the 4-H volunteers and Bartell’s Farm and Garden Supply of Clark, which donated soil amendments for the project. To learn more about 4-H volunteer activities in Union County, contact 4-H Agent James Nichandowicz at 908-654-9854 (ext. 3) or
