The Friends of Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge have announced the addition of a new 12-passenger solar electric tram. The tram, dubbed “Forsythe Explorer,” will be used for natural history tours of the refuge’s Wildlife Drive. Tours will be offered on Saturdays in September and October from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. The schedule beyond October is still to be determined.
The tours are limited to 12 passengers. Reservations are required, and can be made by calling (609) 652-1665. Tram tours will start at the Refuge Visitor Information Center, 800 Great Creek Road in Galloway. A $10 per person donation to the Friends of Forsythe is suggested, which will be used to help with vehicle maintenance. Guided by a Volunteer Master Naturalist, these tours are an excellent opportunity to learn about and observe the birds and other creatures that stop at the Refuge during fall migration.
See our event brochure for details about all of the other activities currently planned at the refuge. Programs for the entire family provide fun and educational opportunities to experience the outdoors and learn about the wonders of nature along our New Jersey shores.
