The Nature Club holds regularly scheduled events like the Environmental Commission Conference throughout each year. Some years on the first Saturday in March, we hold the East Coast Vulture Festival in conjunction with the Wenonah Environmental Commission. On the first Saturday in May, we hold Gloucester County Bird Quest. Also in May, we hold our annual plant sale at the regular May club meeting. In the summer we offer a series of special fieldtrips and every winter we hold the Audubon Christmas Bird Count. For more information on each of these events you can look to our most recent newsletter or check here again in the next few weeks for updates to this page.

Upcoming Nature Club Events

Field Trip – Riverwinds Scenic Traile
Tuesday, March 20 at 6:00pm
Trip Leaders - Paula Hayes and Maria Keefe 609-315-4759

Come take a walk with us to welcome spring on the vernal equinox, at the West Deptford Scenic Park, West Deptford. Today the sun crosses the celestial equator as the Earth’s tilt shifts so the northern hemisphere is towards the sun and the days become longer than the nights. We will look for signs of new life, budding trees, singing birds, and buzzing insects as we take a leisurely stroll in this pretty part of Gloucester County. All ages are welcome. Dress in layers according to the weather. Bring your sense of adventure and join us for an evening outdoors.

Directions: From Exit 21 on I-295, take Delaware Avenue west. In about 0.4 mile, cross Grove Street. Continue for another 0.3 mile, on what is then called Riverwinds Drive. Watch for a sign to the trail, on the right. Meet in the parking lot.
