NJBG Events: NJBG invites you to meet the Botanical Garden’s flying jewels on a Butterfly Walk at the New Jersey State Botanical Garden on Sunday, July 8th at 1:00 pm.
Midsummer is a great time to watch butterflies. The Bergen County Audubon Society will lead this easy walk in the Botanical Garden and surrounding fields to look for and identify the butterflies of NJBG.
Wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather, and bring binoculars if you have them. Meet at the Carriage House Visitor Center in the New Jersey State Botanical Garden, Morris Road, Ringwood State Park, Ringwood, New Jersey.
This program is free and is sponsored by the NJBG/Skylands Association and the Bergen County Audubon Society.
