RINGWOOD — The New Jersey Botanical Garden invites all to explore the Botanical Garden’s many beautiful residents on a Nature Walk, Sunday, June 24, at 10 a.m.

Early summer is a great time to enjoy the birds, butterflies and plants in the Botanical Garden. Dr. Edith Wallace of NJBG and the Bergen County Audubon Society will lead this easy walk in the Botanical Garden and surrounding fields to look for and identify the birdes, butterflies and plants of NJBG. Wear comfortable shoes and meet at the Carriage House Visitor Center. Rain cancels the walk.

This program is free, but there is a $5 per car State Park parking fee.

The New Jersey State Botanical Garden at Skylands, which appears on both the State and National Registers of Historic Places, is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day of the year. Admission to the Garden is always free. Parking is also free in the fall, winter and spring.

NJBG/Skylands is located on Morris Road in Ringwood. For an event schedule, membership brochure, directions or more information, call 973-962-9534 or visit
