JSR N.J. Pinelands Visit

  • 08:30 AM

Hello JSR PCA members.  We’re planning something different this year on June 20th. A JSR auto tour of the fabulous New Jersey Pinelands! Sports cars and SUV’s are welcome! Please RSVP.

We’ll start our tour at 8:30 AM Bodymotion (Cindy Lane, Oakhurst) and proceed to the Pinelands Preservation Alliance (PPA) headquarters (17 Pemberton Rd, Southampton Township) to meet with our guides Steve Sebastian and Jason Howell and briefly tour their facilities.  The PPA folks have been a great help in planning our route.

Leaving PPA headquarters the tour will visit the Franklin Parker Preserve (Speedwell Entrance) to take a short stroll. The Preserve is a large open space with numerous hik- ing trails. We will then continue through the heart of the Pinelands and the cranberry bogs on our way to Batsto Village to tour the village and perhaps the Wharton Mansion.

The trip concludes following a 3:45 PM dinner at the Oyster Creek Restaurant & Boat Bar.

For the SUV folks there will be an alternate portion of the route (for up to 10 AWD SUVs) on sand roads. This is essentially the same route as above except for the first leg between PPA and the Franklin Parker Preserve (Speedwell Entrance). Those who are driving AWD SUVs may take a road that becomes a sand road and meet up with the rest of the group at Speedwell.

If interested, please RSVP (indicating car/SUV) as soon as possible. Bill Tice wrt2013@verizon.net
