Join us as we hike from Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center to Willowood Arboretum in search of Pokémon as well as actual New Jersey wildlife! We'll start by setting lures at the Pokéstops at Bamboo Brook. After exploring the gardens and catching Eevees and Bellsprouts, we'll begin our hike. For this portion of the walk we'll put our phones away and look for the birds, butterflies, snakes, and other critters that call New Jersey home. When we get to Willowood we'll set more lures, explore the beautiful gardens there, and then return.

Please bring water, sunscreen, and plenty of Pokéballs!

Songbirds are on their way south for the winter, and September is a wonderful time to see the most colorful warblers as they pass through New Jersey. American Redstarts, Black-throated Green Warblers, and Magnolia Warblers are just a few of the species we might observe.
