Schiff Nature Preserve in Mendham, NJ

My older daughter just went on a trip with her Brownie troop to Schiff Nature Preserve in Mendham, NJ.

I found out there's a Schiff Summer Nature Program for Kids, running from June 23rd through August 8, 2008. It's for kids aged six through twelve, with an additional week for young adults ages thirteen through fifteen. You can choose a morning program (9:00am to 12:30pm) OR an afternoon session (1:30pm to 5:00pm), but no full day option is available.
