Palmyra Cove Nature Park

One day this week I had the honor of visiting the Palmyra Nature Cove and it is a non-profit organization established in 1999. Its purpose is to teach those who visit about habitat preservation and environmental education. The learning experiences takes place in and outdoors for all 5 year olds to adults.

Since there was no education program or events taken place when I visited there wasn’t a lot of people there.

Inside of the Environmental STEM center held a lot of information about volunteer opportunities and where educational opportunities take place when learning about how to protect the earth.

The Nature Walk– I was able to go outside and stroll on the nature park. The 350 acre Palmyra Cove Nature Park surrounds the shoreline of the Delaware river in the middle of the Pennsauken Creek and Delaware River.
