Passport Program Information

The NJ Parks and Forests Service came out with a passport book for collecting stamps for visiting a select sampling of our states parks, forests and historic sites. Many fine places did not make the list but many beautiful and culturally important sites did make the list so I suppose it all evens out in the end. The passport book is divided into 3 sections, north, central and south Jersey. This stamp and Forest Resource Education Center represent the fourth listing for Central New Jersey. If it was not for the release of a puzzle cache a few years ago and my obsession at the time for first to finds, I would never have visited all 24 sites of central and southern NJ. The puzzle cache is called Passport To Adventure (Central Jersey Challenge) and can be found HERE. The stamp and the passport books are free. To find out more about our fabulous passport program please visit HERE.

Forest Resource Education Center

The Forest Resource Education Center (FREC) features forestry exhibits, information on forest stewardship, sustainable forests, and the benefits of trees. The FREC offers interpretive programs free of charge to schools, youth organizations, and civic groups. Programs focus on developing students’ understanding of forest habitats and forestry practices through hands-on learning. The center staff leads groups on short hikes along a “Learning Trail” where they visit learning stations with informational kiosks. Interested parties should call to schedule an educational hike.
