Pinelands field programs

Join us in the heart of the New Jersey Pinelands. Also known as the Pine Barrens, this ecosystem is far from barren. It is home to many endangered species, carnivorous plants, wild orchids, fish, frogs, snakes, and birds. Many of these animals cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Participants will hike through the pine forest, examine streams, and identify rare plants and animals. Topics include: forestry, ecology, and water quality. Near Chatsworth, NJ
