SOUTH BRUNSWICK — Middlesex County students entering fifth through eighth grades are invited to attend a summer day program at the county’s extension office called “Eco-Adventures at the EARTH Center.” The program will be held Aug. 22-26 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the EARTH Center in Davidson’s Mill Pond Park, home to Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County, in South Brunswick.
The program focuses on environmental stewardship and will have a different theme for each day including Resource Conservation, Addressing Climate Change and Ecological Issues. Most days will begin with an exercise in teambuilding skills to help students get acquainted through fun, hands-on activities. Wednesday will feature a field trip involving the use of Solar Energy. Arrangements can be made for kids with special needs.
The cost of the program is $110 and includes program materials, a peanut free snack, beverages, and a parting gift. Attendees are expected to bring their own brown bag lunch. The registration deadline for Eco-Adventures at the EARTH Center is Aug. 1, but interested participants should register soon as spaces are filling up.
