About Us

The mission of Asbury Woods is to inspire a greater connection to the natural world by protecting, managing and interpreting our property; providing outdoor recreational opportunities; and offering environmental education experiences.  

Asbury Woods achieves this mission through a diverse array of educational, environmental and outdoor recreational programming for schools, community groups, families and individuals of all ages.  In addition, we manage and maintain 205 acres of preserved property which includes native species, old-growth forests, landscaped gardens, wetlands, boardwalk trails and dirt trails.

The Andrew J. Conner Nature Center at Asbury Woods is the cornerstone of educational programming, providing animal exhibits and free public access.  The Brown’s Farm Barn located on Sterrettania Road provides additional programming space for summer camps, school visits and community programs.  The Greenway Trail at Asbury Woods consists of adjacent tracts of land which provides a network of trails connecting Browns Farm and the Nature Center.  The Greenway Trail provides ample recreational opportunities for hiking, running, biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and wading in Walnut Creek.  

Asbury Woods is an independent, non-profit organization whose mission is made possible by funding from program and service fees, grants, special events and generous donations from members and patrons. Annually, Asbury Woods positively impacts more than 100,000 people who use the trails, attend festivals or participate in education and community outreach programs.
