September or “local summer” is a favorite time of year for many of us in Monmouth County! Join us for a morning nature walk at the Buttermilk Valley entrance of Hartshorne Woods Park in Atlantic Highlands. These are some of the most beautiful trails in Monmouth County and can provide for a strenuous hike, so please come dressed appropriately. The trail is 2.5 miles long and there will be elevation and rocky terrain as we explore the buttermilk valley section, so please be sure to wear supportive footwear.
After parking, meet the group at the Buttermilk Valley trail head on Navesink Avenue. This event is subject to change due to weather. We ask that participants register so that we can keep you advised of any changes.
Our Nature Walks are another great opportunity to enjoy some fresh air, get some exercise and explore a park. Nature Walks are also a way to connect with other local nature lovers and chat along the trail as we discover some of the best parks in our area. Walks will be led by an MCF staff member or volunteer that will point out wildlife or native plants, but mostly these events are an opportunity to enjoy a wonderful forested trails with other members of the MCF community. Nature Walks are free to the community, but we encourage you to become an MCF member. Registration is required.
Saturday, September 15th, 9-10:30am.
Hartshorne Woods Park, 300 Navesink Avenue, Locust, NJ 07716
