New Jersey Audubon has been working closely with Duke Farms as they transformed the more than 2700 acre property located in Hillsborough into an environmental center.  The NJ Audubon Education Department has been conducting on-site programming and is constantly working with Duke Farms to plan expanded long-term educational activities on the property.  NJ Audubon Research and Conservation departments are also working with Duke Farms staff to improve wildlife habitat and measure the success of land stewardship activities. 

There are changes in the Bike Share program this year that will unfortunately preclude the use of Duke Farms bicycles on Birding by Bicycle programs, at least for now.  There will also be upcoming changes to the Tram route.  Details will be available on the Duke Farms web site as they are instituted
