   Dinosaur Day was held Saturday, July 22 at the Great Swamp Outdoor Education Center.  Many interested youngsters participated in the events.  There were numerous dinosaur facts to be learned, dinosaur games to be played and dinosaur puzzles to be put together. The children made dinosaur hats and masks and decorated dinosaur eggs. The youngsters became junior paleontologists for the day by digging in the sand for buried animal bones. Look for the Afternoon Scavenger Hunt on Tuesday, August 8. Call (973) 635-6629 for additional information.
