Awareness In Nature Program - Blueberry Season- Mt. Tammany, NJ
This is a full day program that will include outdoor classes, hiking, foraging, learning awareness in nature, identifying plants and mushrooms, tracking animals and picking blueberries!
The program will take place along the trails and peaks of Mt. Tammany and Dunnfield Creek, NJ, which is a protected native trout habitat.
Mount Tammany is the southernmost peak of the Kittatinny Mountains in Warren County, NJ, and it is stunning during this time of year. We will have our lunch on the mountain top.
Our day will include a good amount of hiking that will take about 5-6 hours. We will gain about 1,197ft of elevation along the way. Difficulty is moderate for experienced hikers, and difficult for inexperienced hikers.
We recommend age 12+ for novice hikers, and 7+ for kids who are accustomed to outdoor physical activities, enjoy hiking and can observe all safety requirements. All children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
What to Bring:
Comfortable closed-toe shoes (sneakers/hiking shoes), a small notepad and pen, a basket/foraging bag, hat, sun protective clothes, lunch, protein snacks, at least 2 liters of water, swimming gear. Please do not wear any unnatural body lotions, sunscreens or other body products if you will be going for a swim, as the water body is protected trout habitat.
