Grounds for Sculpture:
We begin our day at a place where art and nature are always at play, New Jersey’s own Grounds for Sculpture. Here, we’ll find over 300 contemporary sculptures artistically displayed over 42 landscaped acres along with indoor exhibitions from established and emerging artists featured in six galleries.
Take your time to stroll, wander, pause to take in the sculptures that capture your eye, and above all relax, unwind, and enjoy; lunch will be on your own.
Next we step into nature at the Raptor Trust, a bird rehabilitation and education center located right here in New Jersey along the border of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge.
This haven for wildlife started as the result of one man’s long-time interest in nature and passionate concern for birds of prey. Today the refuge is home to about 50 resident birds and serves as a rehab center for injured or orphaned wild birds.
During our visit, we’ll have an informative talk about the Trust, meet a live ambassador bird up close, visit the education center and stroll through the pathways that take us nearby the amazing resident raptors.
Our time spent here will remind us how the role of every creature in nature helps create a better world for us all.
