Event Details

Come play and learn together in nature as a family with TBZ’s new nature club, Nature Adventurers!

Worried you or your kids don’t spend enough time outside or together? Join us as we harness the power of gaming to get families up and moving while exploring and learning about local nature and conservation. There’s something for everybody- teens and adults are invited and encouraged to join in the fun, not just little ones!

Each ticket includes a Family Nature Club water bottle.

Where to Go
**NOTE THIS LOCATION MAY CHANGE BUT WILL BE IN A NEARBY AREA** We will meet at the entrance to the Cherry Lane fields and forest, which are directly across from the Regatta Playground at the South Mountain Reservoir. Look for the Nature Adventurer’s sign and your Nature Play Leader, who will be wearing a green shirt and blue backpack!

Who Should Come
Event starts at 1pm and lasts up to 2 hours. We request attendees arrive 10 minutes prior (12:50pm) at the Berson Education Center lobby, then we will walk to a nearby natural area as a group. We will not be entering the zoo.

Nature Adventurers is for all ages and all abilities, though recommended for 6+. If you have acccessibility concerns, please contact your Nature Play Leader, Sarah Burroughs  at 973-731-5800 ext.236 or

  • Reusable water bottle (or pick one up from us if this is your first time!)
  • Sunscreen, bug spray, raincoat, poncho, or other seasonal or weather gear

  • A camera to capture the memories
  • Your imagination and eagerness to have fun!

What Not to Bring

  • Anything you don’t want to get dirty, wet, broken, or lost
  • Electronic devices you might get glued to (phones are ok if you’re just taking pictures). We will be ‘unplugging’ and do not want the electronics to become a distraction.
  • Grumpy attitude!

NEW! Nature Adventurers Backpacks
