Wild New Jersey: Spring awakens at Rutgers Gardens

Wild New Jersey and the COVID-19 pandemic: During these stressful times of social distancing and isolation, taking solace in the natural world is more valuable than ever. I want to share some of my favorite outdoor oases with you. My hope is that by visiting on your own, with your family, or in some cases with your beloved dog, that you too will find the peace and happiness I feel when spending time in the wildest parts of our state.

On a map of the Garden State, our spiderweb of highways seems to converge right near the middle – the New Jersey Turnpike, and Routes 1 and 18. Of course, this being Jersey, where else to locate a beautiful combination of cultivated gardens and wild woods alongside a scenic brook?

Welcome to Rutgers Gardens!
