Little Silver Nature Trails (pdf)
John Heidema is an active naturalist and Environmental Commission member, with particular interest in the Nature Trails of Little Silver.

Along the way, John always reports back with interesting sightings and observations on his travels. We urge residents to share the enjoyment of these trails, and hope you’ll be inspired to take a tour of the trails after reading on for the most recent “Heidema Report”.
