There is plenty to do Saturday at Mercer County Parks, pick from an Outdoor Adventure, have an Easter Egg Hunt or visit with some of the area's newest baby animals!
- On Saturday, March 23, from 10 a.m. to noon, visit Rosedale Park for mercer County’s Adventures program. The weekend nature program series is aimed at children who have a natural curiosity for the outdoors. With the guidance of a County Naturalist, children will broaden their knowledge of nature while dissecting frozen logs, exploring vernal pools and searching for springtime amphibians. Participants will hike through Mercer Meadow’s fields and forest and become acquainted with its various plants and wildlife. Meet at the Hunt house in the Rosedale Park section of Mercer Meadows. Registration is required and each program costs $10. For more information, call Jenn Rogers at 609-3003-0706 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
