Saddler’s Woods is a 25 acre urban forest located in Haddon Township, New Jersey. Saddler’s Woods surrounds a headwater spring of the main branch of the Newton Creek, a tributary of the Delaware River in Camden County, and is unique for its combined features of an old-growth forest, young woodlands, a meadow, and wetlands – all located within five miles of Philadelphia.
This walk will focus on the key characteristics of wintering vegetation – from deciduous trees and shrubs to last year’s herbaceous stalks – that help us determine their identities.
Seasonal botanical tours are led by Saddler’s Woods Conservation Association (SWCA) Director of Forest Management Robyn A. Jeney. Tours are approximately 1.5 to 2 hours on maintained trails.
