This 1,560-acre reserve is a great place to see warblers, tanagers, nuthatches and cuckoos. It is the best place in the county to see northern species like the Common Raven and Winter Wren. An extensive trail system takes you to all corners of the property. The lowland forest at the south end of the reserve contrasts with the pine plantations and mixed hardwood forests of the northern part of the property. Picnicking and fishing around the Camp’s many small ponds are popular summer activities. The Camp’s trails are also a magnet for X-C skiers in winter. The N.E.W. Zoo is a 43-acre zoological park with animals from around the world.
