We would like to thank Park Commission staff for their collaborative effort in the Abbott Marshlands. Last week, a 4-person hot tub and a porter-john were pulled out of the marsh during high-tide, found by our County Naturalist and Land Steward. With the help from our Marina and Maintenance Departments the two items were removed from the marsh for proper disposal. As a major filtration system, it is extremely important to keep the marshes clean to improve the ecosystem around it. Across 3000 acres of open space, the Abbott Marshlands support an array of plants and wildlife. 🌾🌱 🌿🌎🌿🌱🌾 • • #mercercounty #mercermeadows #mercercountynj #mercercountypark #mercercountyparks #mercercountyparkcommision #newjersey #ilovenewjersey #getoutside #njisntboring #newjerseyisntboring #scenicnewjersey #gardenstate #njspots #just_newjersey #tulpehakingnaturecenter #abbottmarshlands #marshlands #environment #nature

Throughout the month of April join the Nature Programs for their Birding 101 series. In this 4-part series, we'll help you develop the basic skills and knowledge essential for becoming a great bird watcher - no field guide necessary. Most time will be spent outdoors; dress accordingly, bring binoculars or borrow ours. Appropriate for teens and adults. Each class is $5 per person or $15 for the series if paid in advance.

On Saturday, March 24 come out to Howell Living History Farm for their Sawmilling & Tree Planting program. Visitors of all ages can get a grip on history when helping hands are needed to plant trees, cut firewood and ready logs for the sawmill. Those who like working the old fashion way can use a two-man saw to cut rounds that will then be split into firewood, wheel chocks and barn peg planks. The very young can help by carrying woods shaving and kindling into the farmhouse for use in the cook stove. Parking and admission are free. For more information please call (609) 737-3299.

Thank you to Pete Watson, Director of Howell Living History Farm and Diane Nickerson, Director of the Wildlife Center for another wonderful program about the most elusive raptors.

The Mercer County Park Commission would like to recognize Eagle Scout, Nick Alpeza on his recent accomplishment. This past fall Nick renovated trail head kiosks at Roebling Memorial Park for his Eagle Scout project, improving the trail system. Message centers were incorporated in the back of the kiosks along with the new landscaping around the perimeter with native plants. Nick has been a patron to Roebling Park his whole life, starting with early education programs given by the Friends of the Abbott Marshlands. Identifying the resources the park offers, Nick creatively came up with the solution to install the message centers to communicate with visitors of the park. Programs offered by the Tulpehaking Nature Center, Friends of the Abbott Marshlands and the Nature Programs provide environmental education, restoration, crafts, workshops and more for the public. Below are photos of Nick with Executive Director, Aaron T. Watson and Tulpehaking Nature Center Manager, Kelly Rypkema.The child in the red t-shirt is Nick participating in one of our summer programs from years back followed by his Eagle Scout Project. We cannot thank Nick enough for his dedication to this park system. • • #mercercounty #mercermeadows #mercercountynj #mercercountypark #mercercountyparks #mercercountyparkcommision #newjersey #ilovenewjersey #getoutside #njisntboring #newjerseyisntboring #scenicnewjersey #gardenstate #njspots #just_newjersey #eaglescout #abbottmarshlands
