This Sunday, we will be taking a walk on Mariton’s trails to look at the changes left after Hurricane Sandy.  Nearly one year ago Sandy pushed over swaths of trees in Mariton’s woods.  It was a pretty impressive display of nature’s power.  We will take a look at the how the forest has changed after the clean up and what changes we might expect to see in the future. The walk is from 1 – 4 p.m. and will begin with some before and after photos.

Here is a view from the Turnpike Trail that has not been available for probably 30 years.  This is the Riegelsville Bridge on the New Jersey side of the River.  While you need binoculars to see this, it is quite visible now that several trees are missing from the skyline.
