It was a day of new experiences and hands-on ecological education for the 6th graders of Bedminster Township on June 7th! The students participated in a busy day of canoeing, water ecology, archery, metal smithing and fishing in Lake Wapalanne. The beautiful day culminated with dinner around the campfire at Piney Point. For many students, they had heard of the NJ School of Conservation as “the camp at Stokes” from older siblings, teachers and parents. We were so pleased to give them a day to experience firsthand the magic of NJSOC that many New Jerseyans know from their own childhood. Thus, the stories and love continue for the next generation of conservationists, scientists and protectors of our natural world.
