This free family friendly day features environmental experiences that raise awareness of the air, water, land and wildlife around us! There’s no better way to learn about nature than by being right in the middle of it.

The day features hand on educational exhibits, scavenger hunts, forest explorations, bird walks, family volunteer experiences, critter and creature meetings, bat talks and so much more! Food trucks will be available for lunch, but plan on coming early and staying till the end! Registration is required for some activities and can be done at the information table the day of the event.

The Union County Falcon Cam provides a live stream of a peregrine falcon nest located on the roof of the Union County Courthouse in midtown Elizabeth. The Falcon Cam is an unique opportunity to observe and study one of nature’s most fierce and fascinating creatures. These birds of prey are known for their rapid dives, which can approach 200 mph.

Stephanie DAlessio, Director of Education for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation (CWF) and Ben Wurst CWF biologist will provide K-8th grade school teachers with the opportunity to learn how to use the UC Falcon Web Cam in the classroom to teach about the ecology and adaptations of the falcon. The Tenafly Nature Center will bring live birds such as a hawk, owl and other raptors to demonstrate predatory/prey relationships, wildlife rehabilitation and issues facing avian wildlife.

Register at ucnj.org/trailside

This training program is free for teachers currently teaching in Union County and made possible by a grant from Phillips 66. Participants earn 5 professional education credits and breakfast and lunch will be provided. conservewildlifenj.org.
