Native Plant Walk

July 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

There’s a world to explore within the forest! Learn about the oxygen-providing trees, plants and various flora that supports life!

What plants grow in Stokes Forest? What’s that tree? What’s that plant? Join Mike Lefebvre as he discusses the variety and importance of native plants found in one of the most diverse forests in NJ.

Mike is an Earth & Environmental Science student @ Montclair State University and he brings many years of experience in documenting Stokes Forest flora and fauna on hikes within New Jersey Nature Preserves. This program is ideal for families seeking to go on a comfortable guided hike within the forest on the NJ School of Conservation campus.

This program is for children and adults. Registration is REQUIRED. Please dress for the weather, with rain gear or an umbrella in case of light rain. You will need your camera (or phone)! Heavy rain will postpone event to July 9th.

The Friends of the New Jersey School of Conservation is a U.S. tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization. When NJSOC closed in July 2020, the Friends launched a campaign to save it. This ultimately led to negotiations with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, owners of NJSOC, to obtain an interim management agreement for the School. This agreement was finalized in April 2021, and the Friends of NJSOC are proud to offer limited programming at NJSOC with the help of dedicated and talented volunteers. We are pleased to register you for one of our programs!

Please note: No pets are allowed on the NJ School of Conservation Campus.
