A wide diversity of plant and animal life can be found along our 1/3 mile accessible Boardwalk Trail, located just behind the Nature Center. Trail features include mature woods, access to a quiet gazebo and a wetland deck where visitors can see summer dragonflies, turtles, ducks and more.
ASBURY WOODS GPS/ORIENTEERING COURSE
This orienteering course was designed and installed by Steve Baker for his Eagle Scout project. Each GPS/Compass course post will has a sign. All of the signs have a letter followed by two numbers that were randomly chosen. When you find the post, enter that information in the corresponding space in the brochure. Please try and stay on the trails as best as you can. All of the starting points are on the trail. When you are finished with the course, return to the Nature Center where a staff person can check to see if you successfully completed the course.
