Oldmans Creek Preserve Update – Auburn, NJ

Oldmans Creek Preserve in Auburn is an old Boy Scout Camp now turned nature preserve under the care of South Jersey Land & Water Trust.

There a few miles of trails here that include views of beautiful Oldmans Creek, remains of Scout camp, lots of birds and wildlife, and some peaceful woods.  Even after 3 or 4 visits, we just keep finding more stuff to love about this little patch of woods.

Grand Teton National Park – Wyoming

Grand Teton National Park Website – https://www.nps.gov/grte/index.htm Wyoming
