Cleanup of Wharton State Forest

The Green Acres program has acquired 650 new acres of Pinelands in Burlington County which will be added to Wharton State Forest.

Future work may include posting signage and preventing ORV damage to the wetlands on the property.

Tall Pines Flower Walk

Autumn is perhaps the loveliest time of the year at Tall Pines State Preserve. Join Michael Hogan and the South Jersey Land and Water Trust (SJLWT) for a leisurely late afternoon walk through the meadows of Tall Pines. This is a special time at Tall Pines. Not only are the trees and shrubs displaying their bright autumn colors, but the meadows are alive with fall wildflowers- goldenrods (there are over 40 species native to the Northeast), bonesets, great clumps of small white aster, camphorweed and many more. This abundance of blooms draw a great variety of butterflies- the migrating monarch, common buckeye, painted lady, red admiral and many species of skippers. Tall Pines is a great place for birding too. Over 140 species have been noted here so we’ll be on the lookout for fall migrants. Bring binoculars and a camera, and join us for an afternoon of nature and good company at Tall Pines.

Please RSVP.  Contact Michael Hogan at hoganphoto@verizon.net or 609-476-2086 if you have any questions.
