Meet the animals, Greet the Fish or Go for a Walk - it's Spring!

Dear Friends,

Spring is here, Spring is here! Spring officially started Thursday, March 20th, and it's time to celebrate...and time to get out! Head to the Turtle Back Zoo in West Orange or the Cape May Zoo down in Cape May to check out if the animals are emerging from their winter slumber, or get up close and personal with a few of our fish friends at Jenkinson's Aquarium in Point Pleasant, Coney Island Aquarium in Brooklyn or Adventure Aquarium in Camden. Ready to shake off the cobwebs and go for a walk? How about a stroll along the paths at Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, a visit to Jockey Hollow in Morristown, or, on Sunday, enjoy an 'End of Winter' Tree Walk at the New Jersey Botanical Gardens and learn about the difference between trees and how to tell them apart. The possibilities are endless, so say goodbye to winter and hello to Spring! There's no better time to get up, get out, and create some fabulous family memories!
