Nature Programs in New Jersey State Parks
Join us at Island Beach State Park for programs with a common purpose: an appreciation of New Jersey's natural world.
Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey and the Division of Parks and Forestry are partnering to offer family, adult and kid-friendly programs in Island Beach State Park. Additionally, CWF is offering programs for organized groups including schools and scouting organizations.
In an effort to support New Jersey's state parks and make them a top destination for families seeking outdoor fun, we are developing a suite of hands-on, nature-based activities that will celebrate the natural world within our State Parks.
In Island Beach State Park, we offer exciting programs to compliment park visitors trip to the beach and bay. During the summer season, Free Daily Programs take place inside the Pavilion at Ocean Bathing Area #1 and a wide selection of guided tours are offered for adults, families, and kids. At the nature center, open daily during the summer and 5 days a week Spring, Fall, and Winter, visit our live animal exhibits, touch tables, and self-guided birding and wildlife trails.
And, there is always highly trained environmental educators available for organized groups such as schools and scouting organizations.
Island Beach State Park is one of the few remaining undeveloped barrier islands in the northeast and home to an amazing diversity of wildlife and plant communities. We are thrilled to offer programs that showcase this wonderful ecosystem.
