Winter Exploration

Come join us in the New Year to explore the wildlife of the Great Swamp! Many creatures make themselves scarce when the temperature drops, so we will be checking for scats, tracks, and other tell tale signs of who is living in the swamp this winter. This program is free for members. For non-members, the fee is $10 per adult, $5 for each child five and over, and $30 per family.

The program begins at 10 and will run until about 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, January 8th, 2011. The meeting place will be at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in the parking area of the former Friends of Great Swamp gift store on Pleasant Plains Rd. in Basking Ridge.
