Welcome to the Friends of Forsythe Website.
The Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge is open 7 days a week from sunrise to sunset. The Wildlife Drive, trails, and boardwalk are all open to visitors. These are located in the Galloway Township section of the Refuge. Other trails and viewing platforms are also located in other parts of the Refuge.
The Visitor Information Center is open for visitors. Interactive displays are in the Gallery. A film introduction to the Refuge is available in the Center. For more information about the Visitor Information Center, click on the “Visitor Center” tab on the home page. The Center’s hours are:
· Monday Through Friday: 10AM to 3PM
· Saturday and Sunday: 9AM to 4PM
The Nature Store, operated by the Friends of Forsythe, is located in the Visitor Information Center. It is open the same hours as the Center. There are many interesting items available for purchase. Our new “at the Refuge” tee shirts are now available in several colors and styles. All profits from Nature Store sales directly benefit Refuge programs.
There are several Osprey nests on the Refuge. A video camera monitors one nest. It is active 24 hours a day all year. This project is a partnership of the Friends of Forsythe and Conserve Wildlife NJ. Nest activity is viewable on a monitor in the Visitor Information Center Gallery and on our website. Click on the Osprey Camera tab on the home page to watch our Ospreys raise their young. Photo Credit: Dave Blood
