Upcoming Scotland Run Park Nature Center programs to celebrate the season 

(Clayton, NJ) – Just because the cold weather is approaching does not mean the Nature Center at Gloucester County's Scotland Run Park will take a break from entertaining community members of all ages with fun new events. Freehold Director Robert M. Damminger and Freeholder Frank J. DiMarco would like to encourage community members to welcome the season with some upcoming events at the park including the Evergreen Wreath Workshop and the Trim a Tree for Wildlife event. 

Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, "Programs like these at our Nature Center allow families to come together during the holidays and enjoy the beauty of the local nature during the winter season." 

Freeholder Frank J. DiMarco, liaison to the Department of Parks, said, “The Nature Center’s free programs allow for a fun excuse to get out of the house and go out and explore what nature has to offer. They are great ways to welcome the holiday season as well.” 

Scotland Run Park will be hosting the Evergreen Wreath Workshop on Thursday, Dec. 14 at 7 p.m. for ages 12 and over, the workshop teaches attendees how to make an evergreen wreath the old fashioned way. It is recommended that those interested in attending bring a wire coat hanger, pruners, ribbon, floral wire, and a bag of evergreens. If you cannot bring the necessary materials, however, there will be materials to share. 

For younger residents, the park will host the Trim a Tree for Wildlife event on Saturday, Dec. 16 at 10 a.m. Children will be able to learn about the gift of giving by making edible ornaments for wildlife to enjoy during holiday season.  

Both events are free to attend.
