Our museum-quality animal collection  

   

We are now the proud owners of  one of  the  nicest  NJ collections of taxidermied animals (200 specimens, including this  gray  fox). It is a great  educational  tool to promote understanding  and appreciation of  wildlife that surrounds us. We plan to display this  unique  collection in our  future nature center.
