With summer in full swing and nature in bloom, now is the perfect time to get outdoors to learn about the incredible biodiversity that we have right here in New Jersey. Releasing a new blog every Friday, join Somerset County 4-H as they introduce you to the world of ecology with entertaining and educational blog posts.
Covering topics such as prehistoric plants, monarch butterflies, and the language of lightening bugs, ‘Nature Inspired’ hopes to provide educational stories of ecology, the outdoors, and nature for all ages. We will explore the big idea behind topics like invasive species, while bringing it home to how it impacts your neighborhood as well as how you can get involved.
Written by Somerset County 4-H coordinator Kristine Manganelli, these insightful blog posts engage readers in a way that pushes them to think about their community’s biodiversity and how they can leave a positive impact for future generations.
