Tiger Den Meeting – hike @ Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge
May 3 @ 1:00 pm – 3:30 pm

Please join us for our Tiger Den animal-viewing hike!  We will be meeting at the Helen C Fenske Visitor Center at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge, located at 32 Pleasant Plains Rd, Harding NJ.  We will be taking an approximate 2 mile hike, with lots of wildlife viewing opportunities include reptile, amphibians and birds.   This will allow the boys to complete their "Tigers in the Wild" Requirement.  

The pack will also be running a pack hike in April.  Scouts can meet their requirement by attending either of the hikes, but this hike will likely be easier/shorter than the pack hike (tailored to 1st graders) and will have more opportunities to see wildlife. 

Be sure to bring your 6 essentials for a hike:  small first aid kit, water bottle, flashlight, trail food, sun protection and whistle.
