Natural Awakenings South Jersey

The Candace McKee Ashmun Pinelands Education Exhibit Is Now Open

Nov 04, 2019 09:50AM

Located in the Pinelands Commission's Richard J. Sullivan Center for Environmental Policy and Education, the exhibit features more than 400 square feet of displays; a 90-gallon aquarium with native Pinelands fish; a terrarium with live, carnivorous plants; and dozens of Pinelands artifacts.

The mission of the exhibit is to raise awareness and appreciation of the natural, cultural and historic resources of the Pinelands. The commission will seek to achieve this mission by using the exhibit as a destination for educational programs and as a “jumping off” point for visitors that want to learn about the Pinelands before exploring the region.

Times: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding state holidays. Location: 15 Springfield Rd., Pemberton. Groups of more than 10 people should contact the Commission's Public Programs office at 609-894-7300, ext. 125, to arrange and schedule their visit.
