Trip to New Jersey Pine Barrens, June 16, 2012
Saturday, June 16, 8:15 A.M. - New Jersey Pine Barrens
The Pine Barrens is a special place shaped by low-nutrient soils and fire, which result in an unusual group of plants and animals. Emile deVito , chief scientist of the New Jersey Conservation Foundation, will show us the 11,000 acre Franklin Parker Preserve.
Meet for car pooling under the big sign at the Crossroads Shopping Center on which is on Delaware route 9 about 0.2 mile south of I-295 (near the Delaware Memorial Bridge). For those who find this inconvenient, we will meet Emile deVito at the Chatsworth Fire House at junction of routes 563 and 532 at 10:00 A.M. This can be reached by turning off the New Jersey Turnpike on to route 70, following it to route 72, bearing right on to 72, then turning south on 563 to the Fire House. Bring a bag lunch and beverage. Reservations to Al Matlack at 302-239-5383 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
This trip is organized by the Society of Natural History of Delaware.
