Union County, NJ – Students from the Kean University Center for Leadership and Service spent a chilly winter morning last weekend spreading seeds and straw alongside a stream bed in Warinanco Park, in hopes of sprouting a colorful burst of native wildflowers and grasses this spring. They also removed litter and debris from the area. The “hard frost” seeding will help ensure that the seeds germinate properly when temperatures warm up, resulting in a lush, healthy habitat for butterflies and other pollinators. The Kean group is a regular participant in the Union County Adopt-a-Park program. Any individual or group is welcome to join Adopt-a-Park. For more information call the Union County Department of Parks and Recreation at 908-789-3683 or visit online at ucnj.org/parks.
