Nature Detective Hike

KIDS…UNLOCK YOUR INNER DETECTIVE

What’s hiding under those freshly fallen leaves? What’s going on in the trees? Let’s do some detective work and make some discoveries together! The Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge is the perfect place to set off in hot pursuit of the region’s most-wanted autumn wildlife. Come learn how to identify animals from their tracks, scats (yes, poop) and other clues. Spy on secret hideouts used by birds, insects, and other woodland creatures. Discover the dining preferences of deer, raccoons, and even coyotes by putting a magnifying glass to some scat. All this detective work is easier than you think. And let’s face it, it’s fun being outdoors in the fall!

Recommended for all, but especially children 5 to 12 years old. This event is free for our GSWA members. Non-members, a $10 donation for adults and $5 for children 6-17 is appreciated.

Meetup Point: GSNWR Bluebird Parking Lot on Pleasant Plains Road, approx. 0.5 miles north of the refuge’s south gate, and 1.6 miles south of the Helen C. Fenske Visitor Center – New Vernon, NJ 07976
