Looking for something wild to do?

Asbury Woods offers a wide variety of programming for students, youth, families and adults in any season! From summer night hikes to winter snowshoe adventures, you can have fun all year long. Our Kids Only, Family and Adult programs are open to the general public.

Pre-registration is encouraged! Many programs can accept a limited number of participants.  Pre-registration is encouraged to reserve a space in these programs.  Programs may sell out, and spaces are guaranteed to pre-registered participants only. 

Your pre-registration helps us to plan and deliver a quality experience for each participant. It secures your place in programs that have limited seating and guarantees that the materials needed for the program will be available. We are not able to accept registration over the phone.  Programs that have reached their capacity fill be marked "FULL" on the registration page.

Each season, one of the programs offered to the public is made free to our members. Check out the Program Schedule page to find out about the current Free to Members program and all the exciting seasonal programs available. Register online for programs at the online registration desk.

Note: There are no refunds to participant for cancellations made within a week of the scheduled program.
