A bit of news: The New Jersey Meadowlands Commission (NJMC)’s fully revamped Tideland Treasures Gift Shop will reopen this Friday at 10 a.m. with all-new environmentally themed educational games, science kits, birding books, home and garden décor, and more.
A Grand Reopening Sale, with all items 15 percent off, takes place through Sunday, April 1. The store is located in the Meadowlands Environment Center (MEC) in DeKorte Park.
Items range from jigsaw puzzles, Meadowlands T-Shirts, solar-powered robots and mobiles to beautifully hand-painted bird baths and feeders.
All proceeds from Tideland Treasures sales go directly toward funding MEC programming. Some 15,000 students from more than 70 school districts in Northern New Jersey are participating in MEC education programs during the 2011-12 school year.
Tideland Treasures will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and can be reached at 201-777-2431.
