October 13, 2021, 10:00 AM - October 26, 2021, 10:00 PM
Learn about various species that call Burlington County Parks home! Every other Wednesday, Naturalist Kate will post a new video on our Nature Programs Page that highlights a local species to better understand their behaviors, natural history and/or significance in the environment. This month will focus on white-breasted nuthatches and big brown bats.
October 22, 2021, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Historic Smithville Park & Smith's Woods
A series of nature walks led by Naturalist Jen Bulava on select Tuesdays and Fridays. This is a repeat of the Tuesday October 19 program. This week is part 3 of a new 3-part series called “Communication in Nature.” Part 3 focuses on communication among plant species. Plants, especially trees, have incredible methods of “talking” using both the wind and underground networks or “wood wide web”. While hiking the ravine trail through beautiful autumn foliage, participants will learn about the information plants can exchange and how different species help each other. Maximum attendance limits are enforced. Register online.
October 22, 2021, 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM @ Boundary Creek Natural Resource Area
Do you want to learn how to take amazing photos in a relaxed, outdoor atmosphere while enjoying nature? Join us at Boundary Creek Park on October 22! Boundary Creek Park is a unique hidden gem that offers visitors fantastic opportunities for bird watching and wildlife viewing. Upland and lowland forests, fields, tidal wetlands, and the open water of the Rancocas Creek all overlap in this relatively small area to create a haven for all types of birds and other wildlife. It’s the perfect setting to capture unique photos! These walks offer a short introduction to photography and continue with an inspiring nature photo walk. During the walks, you’ll be given many tips on how to take more creative and distinctive photos. Prerequisites: A camera (digital recommended) and a basic understanding of photography. Please dress appropriate for the weather and conditions, as we will be hiking through the park. This program repeats on November 12.
