Mark your calendar for March 9th. If you're interested in the Pinelands you'll surely want to attend this conference - "The 30th Annual Pinelands Short Course," presented by the NJ DEP and Stockton University. Chapter President, Norman Goos, has been working all year at the Atlantic County Historical Society to prepare his seminar: "The Nacote Creek Watershed - It's Old Mills and the 3 Streams that Powered Them." You'll see an Atlantic County that you may never have known to exist. If history isn't your thing, there are plenty of other great outdoor life and life science seminars from which to choose. Read the brochure today. Here is the link to get more info and to register. We hope to see you all

at the event.
