Sponsored by the New Jersey Pinelands Commission and Stockton University, the short course offers guided nature hikes and van trips, blueberry tours and presentations on insects, history and winemaking. These educational programs showcase the history, ecology, culture and music of the Pine Barrens. A free continental breakfast will be offered to attendees, beginning at 8 a.m. Professional development credits are available to New Jersey teachers who attend. Registration is $60 per person. Space is limited, so it is critical for participants to register early, as the event may sell out.
