Youth Birding on Petty’s Island

October 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

PREREGISTRATION REQUIRED.  This hike is open to youth ages 12 to 17 and their parent or guardian.  Adults attending MUST be accompanying a youth.

Join New Jersey Audubon and the New Jersey Young Birders Club for an exciting field trip to Petty’s Island.
