Life is about change. History is the story of those changes. Journey back in time with Pinelands Adventures as you examine local history’s meaning and relevance to present day. A wide range of engaging topics will be covered including an Industrial Era community, the highest point in the Pine Barrens, the site of a tragic airplane crash, ruins of an 1800’s manufacturing community, and the site of the once proposed jetport. This is a 5-hour small group bus tour.

The trip will be led by guide and naturalist John Volpa, Pinelands Adventures’ Education Director. John has a long history of Pine Barrens exploration as a former environmental science teacher with Shamong Township Public Schools and an instructor with Pinelands Preservation Alliance’s summer Teacher’s Institute. An Evesham Township resident, John has also been the catalyst behind the creation of the Black Run Preserve in Evesham. John is a highly skilled paddler and passionate about sharing the Pine Barrens.
