Through Your Eyes

The Asbury Woods “Through Your Eyes” experience shares a glimpse of the best Asbury Woods of all: Your Asbury Woods!

Do you love walking through the woods in the morning enjoying the bird song at that time when it feels like you have the trails to yourself? Or do you live for that evening adrenaline rush as you race your mountain bike down the trails toward Walnut Creek? Or maybe it’s the engaging nature programming that your preschooler or third-grader can’t stop talking about that makes Asbury Woods “your” place to connect with nature. Connect with Asbury Woods and your community as we explore the many stories, perspectives, and experiences that make Asbury Woods much more than just a nature center.

Exhibit:

Our summer exhibit, held in the Brown’s Farm Barn at 5774 Sterrettania Road, will feature a photography exhibition highlighting the winners of our 2022 “Through Your Eyes” photography contest, a display of works created and submitted by members of our community.  The exhibition will also include some important stories from Asbury Woods’ past, present, and future.

Programming:

We invite you to participate in programming that highlights the most special, interesting, and loved parts of the Asbury Woods property.  From guided hikes to photography opportunities, nature journaling to children’s programs, we’ll be providing many engaging opportunities for our visitors to connect to the natural world here at Asbury Woods. Our summer exhibit programming calendar will be released in early May 2022.
