This is your chance to come out and hear about our year in review. Learn about the successes we've experienced in our expanded education and water quality programs, our profitable fundraiser gala honoring former NJ Governor Tom Kean, and our exciting inaugural music festival fundraiser.

Set off in hot pursuit of the region’s most-wanted wintertime wildlife on this nature detectives discovery hike at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Learn how to identify animals from their tracks, scats, and other clues. Spy on secret hideouts used by birds, wintering insects, and other woodland creatures.

Be sure to dress for the weather, and feel free to bring along some water and snacks. Registration is required.
