Entertainment Schedule

  • 11:00: Forest Bathing (13 to adult)
    • The practice of forest bathing means to immerse oneself in the forest and soak in the atmosphere through the senses. Today’s walk at an easy pace will focus on connecting to nature through mindfulness, as you explore your senses and the present moment through short, guided, meditations in the forest. Come explore a new way of walking through the forest! Led by New Weis Center Lead Educator Lauren Lynch.
  • 11:30: Moss: An Ant’s Eye View (ALL ages)
    • Summit mountains, fly airplanes, and climb to vistas to get a birds eye view, but it takes only a moment to kneel down to experience an equally spectacular perspective: that of a humble ant. Join on an easy hike as you explore the world of the smallest and oldest land plants, the mosses, to see a world you may have never noticed before. Along the way, talk about the life cycle, evolutionary history, and unique adaptations that make mosses so mighty – despite being so small. Led by special guest (and former New Weis Center Lead Educator) Sarah Crosby.
  • 12:00: Sit Spot & Nature Journaling(6 to adult)
    • Slow down, reflect and appreciate the sensory rich environment of nature. You’ll start with a gentle walk and and a well-loved and time honored sit spot activity. Listen for birdsong, observe trees swaying in the breeze and connect with the natural world through written reflections. Led by New Weis Center Educators Olivia Trezza and Tina Yi.
  • 12:30-1:30: Macroinvertebrates & the Watershed(6 to adult)
    • Join for a fun short hike as you explore the Blue Mine Brook that runs through the property, search for macroinvertebrates, and learn how they can indicate the health of the watershed. Wear rainboots if you want to go in the stream and help collect the specimens. Led by New Weis Center Educator (and 2022-2023 AmeriCorps Northern NJ Source Water Protection Ambassador) Laney Darmiento.
  • 1:00-2:00: Geology Hike(ALL ages)
    • Look for geologic clues to piece together a picture of the forces that shaped this land, examine the minerals that make it up, and learn about the unique geologic history both across New Jersey and right here at Weis! Led by New Weis Center Educators Peter Lundell and Laney Darmiento.
  • 1:30-2:00: Tree Walk (ALL ages)
    • Join for a short, easy paced tree walk on our private interpretive trail, which was created by two of their former interns. Observe and learn about 17 different species, all but one are native to the area! Led by New Weis Center Educator Olivia Trezza.
