Fall Eco-Trekking in the Poconos

Dingmans Falls

Want to get away from it all and learn a few things about wetlands? Join us for a week-long adventure at the New Jersey School of Conservation. During the week you will discover:

  • Waterfalls – We will be exploring the waterfalls at Dingmans Ferry and the “secret” Buttermilk falls at the base of the Appalachian Trail.
  • Mountains – We will trek up to Sunrise Mountain on the Appalachian Trail to catch the beautiful vistas of the Great Valley to the east and the Poconos to the West.
  • Wetlands – We will discover little known wetlands along the Appalachian Trail and a chance to see a few very rare plants.

All of this takes place at the NJ School of Conservation (NJSOC) in northern New Jersey. This is a chance to learn about wetlands in a historic and scenic environment. Many credit NJSOC as the birthplace of environmental education.
