Springtime in the Somerset Hills is simply blissful, and Mother Nature has already treated us to the warm temperatures and dewy breezes of the new season. Each year at about this time, we have a pent up desire to get outdoors. So, as your resident Escape Artist, I invite you to get a taste of the outdoors with these destinations and celebrations of nature and community.
Lace up your running shoes for Middle Earth’s “Run from Winter 10K” at Duke Island Park in Bridgewater on March 25 from 10 a.m. - 1 p.m. (http://www.middleearthnj.org/10K/) Enjoy the scenic view of the Raritan River while supporting the nonprofit agency that assists individuals, primarily youth and teens, during crises so that they may develop into responsible members of their communities.
Enjoy nature with a stroll along “Woodland Walks” at Leonard J. Buck Gardens in Far Hills beginning April 1, and continuing every Sunday afternoon into the month of June. Rejuvenate all your senses as you tour through the spring perennials. Tours begin promptly at 2 p.m. and admission is $4.00.
Visit the Environmental Education Center in Basking Ridge with the entire family and celebrate Earth Awareness on April 29 from 12 noon - 4:30 p.m. Enjoy a scavenger hunt through the trails and learn about the Great Swamp’s vital role as an ecological and recreational resource, free of charge.
