May Day Hike
Sunday, May 1, 5-6:30 p.m.
GSWA's Conservation Management Area, Tiger Lily Ln, Harding Township
Long ago young maidens would arise and wash their faces in the dew on May Day to stay young forever. We can’t promise eternal youth, but we do promise you’ll feel rejuvenated after a spring hike around the 50 acres of GSWA’s Conservation Management Area. Listen for returning neo-tropical migrant birds, watch for wildflower blooms peeking out and enjoy the frog chorus in a gentle family-friendly hike along the trails of GSWA’s flagship restoration area.

Local area resident and West Morris Mendham High School teacher Bruce Taterka, and his paddling companion Juergen Englerth, paddled the entire length of the Passaic River from source to sea. They completed their journey in stages whenever free time allowed over the last several years. Bruce and Juergan will share their incredible stories and pictures about this fascinating trip along one of the most interesting rivers in New Jersey. Through changing river widths, seasons, economic conditions and habitats see the Passaic through a kayak paddlers perspective and camera!
