Fall Forestry Festival
Saturday, October 3, 2015




Visitors use the 875 acre property for recreational activities and the Toms River for fishing.

The FREC strives to teach and practice forest stewardship — managing New Jersey's forest resources so that we have healthy trees and forests, clean air and water, and places to learn and enjoy the outdoors.

Come to the FREC to be a forester for a day and a steward for life


The Forest Resource Education Center (FREC) provides free environmental education programs to groups of all ages. The FREC teaches forest stewardship at the Fall Forestry Festival and other special events to families, girl scouts, and boy scouts. FREC includes an Interpretive Center for environmental education and the New Jersey State Forest Nursery which grows seedlings for reforestation.
