Free Guided Bird Walks

Free Guided Bird Walks The Wetlands Institute will begin holding guided bird walks at the site of the former Ponderlodge Golf Club in Lower Township, now a state wildlife sanctuary, on Mondays beginning Sept. 25. The 239-acre tract of land was recently purchased by the N.J. Department of Environmental Protection for preservation.

The Wetlands Institute’s bird walks will begin at 8am and leave from the front parking lot of the new wildlife preserve off Shawmont Road. The bird walks are free for all participants, who may expect to see eagles, falcons, woodpeckers, warblers, waterfowl and even turkeys during the trek.

The Wetlands Institute promotes the conservation and preservation of coastal ecosystems by providing a fun and educational experience for families, school groups and vacationers of all ages.
