The Greater Watchung Nature Club will kick off its season with a picnic on Tuesday, September 9, at 6 p.m. at the Trailside Museum Association room, located on the downstairs floor of the original museum building. Those attending are asked to bring a dish to share with all attendees.
The club was formed in 1995 by uniting the Watchung Nature Club and the Echo Lake Naturalists' Club from original clubs formed in 1924, according to the clubs Publicity Chairwoman, Mary Hand.
The main focus of the club is an interest in birds, but extends to all conservation issues. It meets monthly on the second Tuesday at 8 p.m. from October through May in the downstairs meeting room of the Scotch Plains Public Library.
Monthly trips to various natural areas are scheduled and activities include participation in Trailside Nature and Science Centers Harvest Festival, slated for Sunday, September 28, a Holiday party in December, Christmas Bird Counts, and extended trips out of state.
