We are delighted to re-open our trails on the Watershed Reserve starting Saturday, May 2. Please honor the following rules for everyone’s safety to address public health concerns relating to COVID-19:
· The boardwalk remains closed.
· Masks or other face coverings must be worn on the trails and in parking lots and other areas on the Reserve.
· Visitors are required to maintain a 6-ft. distance from non-family members.
· Picnicking and gatherings of any kind are prohibited until further notice.
We hope that you and your family enjoy our trails and that you stay healthy and safe. We will reevaluate the decision to reopen our trails if visitors do not follow these rules.
Unfortunately, the Watershed Center remains closed until further notice.
We have also canceled, postponed, or will be delivering online versions of all Watershed programs through mid-May. We will review this policy periodically and will add updates on our website.
The combination of social distancing and a desire for family-friendly activities have The Watershed Institute staff brainstorming ways to engage you in nature and increase your appreciation of central New Jersey’s environment. So tune into our social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram as well as our website for ideas!
If you have registered for a Watershed program, please email Education Manager Ellen Gallos at [email protected] for further information and to receive a refund. Please consider donating some or all of your program fee to help us fulfill our mission to keep water clean, safe and healthy.
As our work to keep our water clean, safe and healthy continues, we are thankful for people who have been supporting each other during these troubling times.
We wish you and your family the best of health.
