She also said the department will have its fourth annual mud bog Saturday at the Long County Wildlife Festival site.
“The gates open at 10 (a.m.) and the mud bogg begins at 1 (p.m.). Kids 10 and under get in free, and it’s $10 for everyone else.
“We’re going to be having a mud run for the kids 12 and under, and the proceeds go to the recreation department.”
