Free Trailside Talks

The Union County Department of Parks and Recreation is offering two free lectures for
adults and high school students at Trailside Nature and Science Center. 

“Residents should make time to enjoy stimulating programs this winter at Trailside,” said Tony Monteiro, a former Elizabeth councilman.  “It’s
a great way to get together with family and friends for an inspiring, educational and inexpensive experience.”  

On Friday, February 16, from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. John Prescott, History Programs Coordinator of the Union County
Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs, will trace the history of African-Americans, with highlighted stories in our county, going back to the Revolutionary War. 

This talk recognizes and celebrates African American contributions to the Union County community. 

           On Saturday March 24, from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. NASA Solar System Ambassador
Paul Cirillo will present a breathtaking photographic tour of the planets, asteroids and comets in our Solar System.  

The talk will also highlight the current and future space missions that NASA and the Jet Propulsion laboratory have planned to explore these
celestial wonders.  There will be ample time for questions and answers.
