A Walk in the Woods at Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary: Day of the Raptor

There is one more "walk in the woods" scheduled for Bernardsville Public Library's "One Book Bernardsville" program this month.  In homage to Bill Bryson's A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail, this walk will take place on Saturday, October 25 at 1:00 pm at the NJ Audubon Scherman Hoffman Wildlife Sanctuary.
One of the most spectacular fall sights is the migration of the raptor, and after a presentation in the Nature Center on our local birds of prey, participants will enjoy a walk on the sanctuary grounds exploring the wildlife, the beautiful fall scenery and learning about the animals and plants that inhabit it.  The sanctuary protects 276 acres of woodland, field and floodplain habitat where over 200 species of birds have been sighted, and it is home to over 60 species of nesting birds.

This walk is for adults and children aged ten and up.  It's free; advance registration is required and is limited to 25.

One Book Bernardsville is shared community reading experience which includes a month of book discussions as well as other activities for both adults and children.  Detailed information on all the events during the month is available at  All the programs are free.  To sign up for the events, go to or call 908-766-0118.
