 A big thank you from the Union County Freeholder Board to all the Adopt-a-Trail volunteers who came out to the Watchung Reservation last Saturday to celebrate National Trails Day, and to the organization Jersey Cares. The all-ages group of 25 strong enjoyed a quick breakfast and a nature walk before gathering up their pickaxes to tackle a big erosion control project at the Deserted Village.  Thanks also to our volunteer chainsaw crew! For more outdoor adventure, come to Union County’s annual Bio-Blitz this Friday and Saturday June 12-13 in the Watchung Reservation, featuring games, giveaways, prizes and an insider’s look at the hundreds of plants and animal species hidden in the park.

At the the April 19 meeting I answered with these comments.

After ten years of following government in Union County I conclude ...
