Around the Pinelands

Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12

PERSEID METEOR SHOWER WATCH AT BASS RIVER STATE FOREST - 11:00 p.m. - 1:30 a.m., Bass River State Forest, 762 Stage Road, Tuckerton, NJ. Looking for a nice, dark location to view the Perseid meteor shower? Join volunteer “astronomy guide” Wayne Vogel at the Lake Absegami beach to view the Perseids. Meteor showers occur when the Earth passes through dust released by a comet. Bring a blanket or reclining chair; telescopes and binoculars are not necessary and cloudy skies cancel. Also, if you bring a flashlight please keep it pointed down at all times. If you shine a light into someone’s eyes it will take some time for them to adjust to the darkness again. For a 2018 summer program schedule or for more information contact the Forest Office at (609) 296-1114 or
