OPEN SPACE PROGRAM CONTINUES NATURE WALKS
Explore wilderness right in the heart of Franklin Township!
The Township’s open space program will, for the 13th consecutive year, sponsor guided nature walks on Township open space parcels. The 2017 walks began in March and continue through October.
The walks are free to the public. The walks are along easy terrain and are
great for kids. Bring binoculars, if you have them, and waterproof footwear.
While Franklin Township is located in one of the most densely populated regions of the country, it claims over 9,000 acres of
preserved land (1/3 of the township’s land mass) and this area provides key habitat for unique species of plants and animals.
The May and June walks will be led by NJ Audubon naturalists. The walks will be led by two township residents and avid birders, Chris and Paula Williams.
