On May 6th 2017, local non-profit group, Protect Our Wetlands, Water and Woods' (POWWW) hosted their Annual Wildflower Walk. The Wildflower Walk was led by Vice-president and naturalist Mike Leone at Jonathan's Woods County Park in Denville Township.
POWWW had a great turnout, and our hikers enjoyed a large variety of wildflowers, trees, funguses, birds, and even a Garter Snake.
Reminder that we have POWWW's Annual Spring Bird Walk on Saturday March 13th at Jonathan's Woods.
The Annual Spring Bird Walk departs from the Old Beach Glen Road, Denville parking lot at 7:30 AM. It will be led by Nora O’Rourke and Mike Leone and will run approximately three hours. Please plan to arrive by 7:00 AM for orientation.
The walk will be easy-paced with plenty of stops to look at birds. We will spend some time listening for bird songs and looking for signs of bird activity. 56 species of birds including 20 species of warblers were recorded on the 2014 Birding Walk. We will also be discussing the importance of Jonathan’s Woods as a migratory stop-over and breeding ground.
Wear sturdy walking shoes and dress in layers for the weather. Bring your binoculars, water and a snack. We will have field guides and a few extra binoculars to loan out. For more information, contact Mike Leone at 973-479-7816 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
