It’s never too early to get your kids in touch with Mother Nature.
On Tuesday, March 9, the New Jersey Audubon Society will be holding what it is calling a “Wonder Walk” at South Mountain Reservation for children ages 18 months to 5 years and their parents or caregivers. The kids should either be walking or in a carrier, not a stroller. The NJAS says the walk will help kids discover how trees “wake up” in spring, look for animal homes and listen for early spring birds.
The walk begins at 10 a.m. and participants should meet in the Tulip Springs parking area on Cherry Lane, which is what the road that begins as Lakeside Avenue in Verona is called when it gets to that part of West Orange (see the map below). Cost is $5 for NJAS members and $7 for non-members. Pre-registration is required because space is limited. Contact Kelly Wenzel at 973-226-6082 for more information and to register.
