More than 560 Pinelands Short Course attendees spent the day learning about the unique wildlife, ecology, people, folklore and history of New Jersey’s 1.1 million-acre Pinelands National Reserve at nearly 40 educational courses taught by experts.

“Our biggest goal is to help raise awareness of the Pinelands and provide people opportunities to learn about this area. The more people know, the more they want to protect and support the Pinelands,” said Paul Leakan, communications officer for the New Jersey Pinelands Commission.

In one classroom, Matt McCort gently held a cream-colored northern pine snake covered in dark blotches, a pattern that blends well on a sandy surface or the forest floor, as participants admired the specimen. The snake softly hissed, but remained calm as he curled around McCort’s safe hands that are experienced in handling wildlife.
