Take a walk on the wild side of Ceres Park. Go on a walk guided by experts of this relatively unknown side of Ceres owned by Gloucester County that can be difficult to explore on your own. We will walk the park to appreciate the natural wonders that Ceres offers as the "hidden gem" of Gloucester County parks - abundant ferns, forest birds, wildlife and maybe even follow the rail bed of the now extinct West Jersey Mining Company Railroad. Historically a marl mining site, this location shares a common heritage with the World Heritage green sand marl (glauconite) pit mine in Mantua Township which is being called one of the most important paleontological locations on Earth. Sturdy shoes and bug spray are recommended.
Directions: From Route 322 take Lambs Road (635) to Pitman-Barnsboro Road (553 Alt). Turn left onto Route 553A. Watch for Ceres Park sign on your left after crossing over Route 55. Meet in the parking lot, where we will carpool to the county-owned land.
