Neotropical Migrants: Birds of the Rainforest in New Jersey

May 14, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am

Did you know that rainforest birds spend part of their year in New Jersey? Join us as we look for these jewels of the forest!

As the calendar moves towards Spring, the birds of the rainforest begin their migration northward. Join us as we seek to find these fascinating creatures at the New Jersey School of Conservation. Our guided hike will teach you how to identify birds by their sight, sound and where they live. This activity can be enjoyed by beginners or those with experience. Bring your binoculars, your hiking shoes and the birds will do the rest!

Leading this event will be Tom Miller, founder of Tropic Guides; an organization dedicated to giving American students and teachers the opportunity to do original research in the rainforest. He has led birding trips throughout North America and has worked as a field scientist researching bird populations on eastern military installations for Colorado State University’s Center for the Ecological Management of Military Lands.

If you have any difficulty with the registration process, please let us know so we can help! Contact us at info@njsoc.org.

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

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!
