“arboretum & bird sanctuary”

The Cora Hartshorn Arboretum and Bird Sanctuary (16.5 acres), also known as the Hartshorn Arboretum, is an arboretum and bird sanctuary. Its trails are open to the public daily without charge. Various programs are also offered for children, families, and adults. The arboretum was begun by Miss Cora Hartshorn in 1923 on undeveloped woodland of oaks, tulip trees, dogwood, and beech. She designed a system of roads and walking paths; by 1938 there were 3 miles (4.8 km) of paths. In 1958 she donated the arboretum to the township. The arboretum contains 45 species of trees, including 275-year-old tulip trees, as well as rare ferns, over 150 species of wildflowers, and 100 species of birds.

This is a gem of a place. Almost fairytale like with a stone house in the midst of a small forest in suburbia. Plus, they have great kids programs and summer camp!
