If Trees Could Talk Hike at Glades Wildlife Refuge, Newport, NJ

Lace-up sturdy boots and join Natural Lands for a vigorous hike through a vast, marshy area known as Bear Swamp, located within Natural Lands’ expansive Glades Wildlife Refuge. In this remarkable old-growth forest—where the Jersey Pine Barrens meets Delaware Bayshore habitat—Bald Eagles soar and woodpeckers tap on hollow trees.

Natural Lands’ staff members Steve Eisenhauer and Brian Johnson guide this fascinating hike, where you’ll touch 450-year old trees, and learn about climate, wildlife, and more. Registration is required.
