About Asbury Woods
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 recreational programming for schools, community groups, families and individuals of all ages. In addition, Asbury Woods manages and maintains 216 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 the 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, skiing, snowshoeing, and wading in Walnut Creek. Trail users will find peaceful spots to rest and relax to take in the serene vistas.
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 thousands of people who use the trails, attend festivals or participate in education and community outreach programs.
