Bernardsville Library Offers Walks and Hikes

The Mayor's Wellness Campaign welcomes you to join in some healthy walks and hikes being offered by the Bernardsville Library.  Let's get out in the fresh air and have some exercise while learning about nature.

A Walk in Lord Sterling Park: Saturday, October 11 at 9:00 am We’ll take a walk in Lord Stirling Park (it’s closer than the Appalachian Trail!) and get tips on how to prepare for a “walk in the woods” and how to behave when you are there. Led by park naturalist Christa Wood, this is an improvisational hike on level trails highlighting what’s occurring in nature at this time of year. We will meet at Lord Stirling Park, 190 Lord Stirling Road in Basking Ridge at 8:45 am in the lobby of the Environmental Education Center. Free. Advance sign-up is requested. Click here to sign up.

NJ Appalachian Trail Hike: Saturday, October 18 at 9:00 am Join Bob Baker for a day hike on a portion of the actual Appalachian Trail that runs through New Jersey near the Delaware Water Gap. We’ll hike toward Sun Fish Pond. Bring your lunch and water. Details and the meet-up location will be emailed to participants a week ahead. Free. Advance sign-up is required. Click here to register.

Day of the Raptor: Saturday, October 25 at 1:00 pm One of the most spectacular fall sights is the migration of the raptor.
