Intro to Fall Birding

Plant Communities in Our Forests
Where: Highlands Preserve – Hewitt, NJ
When: Saturday, October 10th from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. 
We will take a moderate hike through the forest around several plant communities including wetlands and fields.

This walk will begin from the green trail to the blue trail and back.
 
 
Exploring The Highlands Region
Where: Apshawa Preserve – West Milford, NJ
When: Saturday, October 24th from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m.
This rocky moderate hike will take us through outcroppings and overlooks that define our New Jersey Highlands region. We will discuss what makes this region so unique, from the geology to the plants to the animals that live here. This hike will begin from the blue trail to the white trail, stopping by to overlook the reservoir and then head back. 
 

The Forest in the Fall

To finish off our series of fall hikes, we will take an easy hike through the trails at The New Weis Center.
