Environmental Education Center (EEC) Naturalists will welcome guests and dinosaurs to 190 Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge, New Jersey on Sunday, November 4, 2018 from 3:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. “Dinosaurs Rock!” is a fun for all ages afternoon that is all about dinosaurs with a visual and interactive presentation featuring museum-quality life-size dinosaur fossils and other prehistoric specimens that are 10,000 to over 500 million years old. Children will be able to participate in a hands-on fossil dig activity where they will uncover genuine fossils including a dinosaur bone, shark teeth, ammonites, petrified wood, and more. A “take-home” fossil can be the beginning of a unique collection. Pre-registration is not required. A $5 donation is suggested. The Somerset County Park Commission Environmental Education Center is nestled within the western portion of the Great Swamp Basin of the Passaic River. The wide variety of habitats provide homes for diverse plant and animal populations in this environmentally sensitive park. All are within walking distance of the multi-faceted building. An environmentally-based library is located within the Center itself.. “The Great Swamp Experience” on the lower level at the EEC features interactive displays, vignettes, taxidermy, and archeological artifacts highlighting the history and ecology of the Great Swamp. The exhibit is open 7 days a week from 9:00 A.M. to 4:30 P.M. Admission is free. The Environmental Education Center is open seven days each week. Call 908-722-1200, ext. 5002 for schedule updates.
