The annual spring picnic will be held this year at historic and lovely Wenonah Lake. This is a pot luck dinner of shared dishes. Attendees should bring a food item to share, and their own utensils, plates, and cups to cut down on the waste of disposables. Those who prefer to provide their own meals are welcome to do so. As with all club functions, the picnic is open to the public so why not bring a friend?

After the picnic, we will enjoy a walk on the trails along the lake. Wenonah Lake was dammed in 1762 by Abraham Dilks to provide power for his grist mill that once stood on Maple St on the lake’s southern end. The lake is one of the few remaining swimming lakes in South Jersey. The woodlands surrounding the lake are part of the Wenonah Conservation Area. After the picnic we will stroll the woodland trails to look at the plant life and look and listen for birds. The area is botanically rich and diverse, and a haven for wildlife, including many song birds and a resident pair of Barred Owls.

Directions: Wenonah Lake is located at the northwest corner of N. Jefferson Ave. and Maple St. in Wenonah. From Mantua Ave., turn north onto N. Jefferson Ave. Continue past the 4 way stop at N. Jefferson Ave. and Maple St to enter the lake parking lot. Wenonah Lake can also be reached by traveling west on Maple St. from Rt.553 or by heading east on Ogden Road from Rt. 45 in Deptford.
