About This Event

There’s more to our forests than meets the eye. Join us on an evening walk to learn more!

We’ll hit the trails and explore one of the oldest patches of forest on the property—Research Woods! Along the way, we’ll learn how to identify some common native and invasive woodland species, discuss how and why New Jersey’s forests have changed over time, and learn why it’s especially important to protect our oldest ecosystems. This is a beginner class, but all are welcome regardless of knowledge level or background!

This program is appropriate for adults. Please dress for the weather, this class is entirely outdoors. Long pants and tick deterrents are recommended. Participants should expect to be walking about 2 miles on various trail types for the duration of the class.

Meet in front of the Farm Barn Orientation Center for check-in. We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the start of class. We cannot accommodate late arrivals and the class will depart on time.


Please stay home if you are sick. Pre-registration is required, walk-ins will not be accepted. No refunds and no exchanging or transferring tickets. Please note that each participant must be registered. Unless otherwise noted, ALL programs at Duke Farms are RAIN or SHINE.

Please note that registration to a Saturday program comes with an entry pass. You DO NOT need to register separately for a Saturday Entry Pass.
