Helping preserve a place for nature in the heart of Gloucester County, NJ


Keeping the park beautiful!


What We Do

We are a committee of volunteers supporting Tall Pines State Preserve located in Gloucester County, New Jersey, USA. Our activities include:

  • SPONSORING volunteer projects that enhance the natural beauty and wildlife habitat of the preserve.
  • WORKING with and assisting preserve officials.
  • FACILITATING public awareness and enjoyment of Tall Pines.
  • RAISING FUNDS for the benefit of the Preserve.

Upcoming Events

  • Fall Wildflower, Butterfly, and Birding Walk: Sunday, October 10th, at 1:00 PM. Join the Friends of Tall Pines at the parking lot for a leisurely guided walk through the Preserve on an autumn afternoon. Explore the beauty of Tall Pines in fall as the trees reveal the first hints of autumn color and the Friends point out fall wildflowers, birds, butterflies and other natural flora and fauna that call Tall Pines home. We will visit fields of yellow goldenrods and white asters and look for migrating monarch and buckeye butterflies. And we will be on the lookout for Tall Pines birds too. Perhaps we will spot one of our resident bluebirds or passing fall migrants heading south. So bring your binoculars and a camera too, if you like. After the walk we invite all to gather in the parking lot for light refreshment of cider and cookies. This event is free and open to the public.
  • Monthly Meeting: Tuesday, October 12th at 7:00 PM in the Jack C. Sheppard, Sr. Community Center (historic train station), 2 North East Ave., Wenonah, NJ.
